Isabel Hilton talks to the British human rights lawyer, Clive Stafford Smith, who made his name representing death row inmates in Southern America
On Night Waves this evening Isabel Hilton talks to British human rights lawyer, Clive Stafford Smith, about his life and work. From fighting against the death penalty in the American South to being the first British lawyer into Guantanamo Bay , Clive Stafford Smith has deployed his considerable legal skills in pursuit of his moral beliefs. He is passionately opposed to the death penalty, questions the value of prison and argues that no one should be judged by the worst thing they have ever done. Isabel Hilton talks to him about personal responsibility, what Hurricane Katrina means for his ex-clients, and how he responded himself when he suffered a brutal mugging in New Orleans.
