Amnesty Winter Talk

Prof Nicky Padfield: Human Rights & Imprisonment for Public Protection

9th April at 7.00pm in Ely Methodist Church.

Nicky will discuss the Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) sentence: its creation in 2003 in the context of other ‘life’ sentences, its evolution, and why there are still so many prisoners in prison serving a sentence which was abolished in 2012. Today, there are still nearly 3,000 people in prison serving an IPP; nearly half have never been released and the majority of these have been held for at least 10 years beyond the end of their minimum term.

Professor Nicky Padfield KC (Hon) trained as a barrister, but worked most of her life as an academic lawyer at the University of Cambridge. She sat as a part-time judge from 2002-2014
