A fight against Injustice | Clive Stafford Smith, Reprieve

Clive Stafford Smith is founder and director of Reprieve, an organisation dedicated to offering free legal support to the world’s most vulnerable people. Clive represents those facing execution or abusive counterterrorism policies, including rendition, torture and extrajudicial imprisonment and killing. He describes his role as “putting himself between the haters and the hated.” In a candid interview conducted the morning after a friend and client was executed, Clive discusses the shocking realities of representing some of society’s most rejected individuals, and the varied techniques he has developed to help him in his fight against injustice.
