Bail Observation Project - Pro Bono Programme
The Bail Observation project is based in Oxford. It publishes reports based on Immigration Bail hearings. The Project is concerned about those who are detained under immigration powers.
Student volunteers observe and report on the Immigration Bail hearings held at Newport, Wales. The students will decide if there are any specific issues that the scheme will focus on. After observing and collating information, the students write a report for the Bail Observation project.
