He gained his LLB in 1968 from the London School of Economics, a BCL from Oxford in 1970, and a PhD in 1973 from the University of Manchester.
Ashworth through his works has shown much resentment towards the approach of the British Parliament to basic principles of criminal justice. He advocates respect for the presumption of innocence and has written a considerable number of articles on different areas of law of evidence.
