As part of this project, Matt oversaw and delegated the work of team members as well as raising awareness of the Innocence Project within the community through the creation of a project magazine and liaising with the Criminal Cases Review Commission. Additionally, teachers and fellow students elected him as Head Boy in his final year of school.
