Harry Potter is a criminal defence barrister , a former fellow of Selwyn College Cambridge, who insists his famous name has been a distinct advantage. He has represented clients in all areas of crime, including court martials. He is a published author of several books on legal and Scottish history. His latest book tackles the history of prisons.. He has worked for the BBC presenting a TV series on our legal system and a documentary on capital punishment. He is also a qualified Church of England priest and for eight years was a prison chaplain attending many lifer review hearings. He believes that too many people are jailed and for too long. He regularly lectures on the death penalty, criminal justice and prisons.
Tom Lloyd, the former Chief Constable of Cambridgeshire, has had a long career working throughout the police force on many high profile cases and has a wealth of experience and some great insights and controversial opinions on drug laws that make for a fascinating talk. Mr. Lloyd controversially has said he now regrets investigating and arresting drug users during his career as a policeman in London and Cambridge. “When you think about arresting somebody who is in possession of drugs, are you really catching a criminal?” he asked. “When it came to law enforcement I think I caused more harm than good.” He is chairman of Whistleblowers UK. He said: We have a simple, if ambitious, vision for the future of this country which is an environment where whistleblowers feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without fear of personal loss or detriment.”
Scott Walsh is a convicted armed robber, who was jailed in the No 2 Court at the Old Bailey in 1996. His last sentence was 19 years ago. Scott transformed his life and is now a pillar of his community with a law degree and has worked as a Parish Councillor since 2008. He lectures on criminal justice, restorative approaches and his personal insights into our prison and the Justice System. He helped found and manage the charity, The Restorative Justice Foundation and has worked extensively with young offenders. Scott received a major award from the Ministry of Justice recognising his achievements in significantly reducing youth crime through Restorative Justice (RJ) methods. His experience of youth crime and our prisons from a first hand perspective is second to none.
