ACTUAL INNOCENCE CLINIC IS A 6-HR. CLINIC. 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 occasionally visit inmates in prison. The weekly clinic class addresses topics relevant to actual innocence law and procedure.
