Crime Live – become a forensic scientist for the night with Inside Justice UK

23 October 2017

On Friday 3 November, The School of Law will be hosting eminent forensic scientists Tracy Alexander and Jo Millington at Crime Live, an event by Inside Justice UK, a charity dedicated to investigating alleged miscarriages of justice.

Giving the public a rare opportunity to observe and take part in a re-creation of a forensic crime investigation, Tracy and Jo will investigate a blood-spattered crime scene and endeavour to solve a violent murder. In doing so, they will reveal the astonishing capabilities of forensic science, whilst also exposing the limitations and dangers in tunnel-vision police investigations and contaminated evidence.

Founder of Inside Justice and Producer of the TV series Rough Justice, Louise Shorter, tells us: "This is a rare opportunity to meet and interact with industry-leading experts. Tracy Alexander, Director of Forensic Services at City of London Police, and Jo Millington, Senior Blood Pattern Analysis Expert, have a combined experience of over 45 years in the field and are internationally recognised. This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see behind the scenes of a crime scene investigation."

Crime Live will be coming to the University of Manchester on Friday 3 November for two events at 2pm and 7pm. For more information, visit our events page.
