Julian Young, partner of the British law firm Julian Young & Co., will be a guest of the CLSR this Friday, November 6, at 3 pm at the St. James Conference Room and will speak about his work that led to the exoneration of Sean Hodgson. Mr. Hodgson spent nearly 30 years in prison for a murder which he did not commit, and his innocence was proved through the use of DNA evidence.
