The Event

Legal Initiative would like to invite you to an upcoming conference titled: 'Afternoon of awareness' whereby JENGbA (Joint Enterprise: Not Guilty by Association), and Doughty Street Chambers Barrister Tunde Okewale will speak at Birkbeck, University of London.

JENGbA was launched in 2010 as a grass roots campaign with the mission statement of amending or abolishing the 'joint enterprise' law, and overturning the convictions of people who have not directly contributed to the commission of an offence.

The engaging discussion followed by Q&A will come one day before the important Supreme Court hearing of R v Jogee on October 27th & 28th which may hold major significance for the controversial criminal law 'joint enterprise' doctrine.

If you are interested in law, human rights, social justice, or want to network with passionate people striving to bring a positive change to our society, please join us at this FREE event and be a part in helping achieve institutional change.

Registration is welcome but not required.

The Speakers

       Jan Cunliffe (mother of Jordan Cunliffe, a blind 15 year old convicted of murder through the 'joint enterprise' doctrine)

       Mandy McCracken (mother of Gerard Childs, whose 'joint enterprise' murder conviction was recently overturned from murder to manslaughter)

       Gloria Morrison (Co-Founder and Campaign Co-ordinator of JENGbA)

       Tunde Okewale (Founder of Urban Lawyers and Barrister at Doughty Street Chambers)
