The Clinic is open to students who have completed their first two semesters.


Students 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.
