About the Author
After graduating from Columbia Law School in New York, Clive Stafford Smith spent nine years as a lawyer with the Southern Center for Human Rights working on death penalty cases and other civil rights issues. In 1993, he moved to New Orleans and launched the Louisiana Crisis Assistance Center, a nonprofit law office specializing in the defense of death penalty cases for impoverished defendants. In 1999 Smith founded Reprieve, and the following year, he was awarded an OBE for "humanitarian services." He moved back to the U.K. in 2004 where he is focusing on achieving due process for the detainees being held by the U.S. in Guantanamo Bay, as well as well as continuing his work on death penalty cases. Smith was made a Rowntree Visionary and Echoing Green Fellow in 2005. A dual citizen, he lives in London.
