California Innocence Project
Date and Time
Monday, November 17, 2008 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice
This presentation on the California Innocence Project focuses on how wrongful convictions occur, and why the project has been successful in overcoming obstacles by promoting social justice in the legal system.
The California Innocence Project is a non-profit law school clinical program that has developed a national reputation for securing the release of the wrongfully convicted. Operating out of California Western School of Law, the project annually reviews more than 1,000 claims of innocence from California inmates and has earned the release of four wrongfully convicted clients. The project's goal is to seek any and all ethical and legal avenues for the release of the wrongfully convicted.
Light refreshments served.
