Actual Innocence Clinic

Students in the Actual Innocence Clinic screen and investigate claims by inmates that they are actually innocent of the offenses for which they are incarcerated. While investigating cases, students typically interview witnesses, research cases, review trial transcripts, and visit inmates in prison. The weekly clinic class addresses topics relevant to actual innocence law and procedure.

The Actual Innocence Clinic is a project of the Budd Innocence Project.

Actual Innocence students have the chance to be the driving force in moving cases forward for those who would otherwise be without an advocate in the system.
