Course Description

Length: 1h 0min    Published: 1/10/2019    
How are people wrongfully convicted? Why would someone plead guilty to a crime they did not commit? What are the common issues that cause wrongful convictions? The program will answer these questions through real life cases of wrongful convictions which were overturned. About the California Innocence Project The California Innocence Project (CIP) was founded in 1999 as a clinical program at California Western School of Law. It is dedicated to releasing wrongfully convicted inmates and providing an outstanding educational experience to the students enrolled in the clinic. CIP reviews more than 2,000 claims of innocence from California inmates each year. Students work alongside CIP staff attorneys on cases where there is strong evidence of factual innocence. Together, they have secured the release of many innocent people who otherwise may have spent the rest of their lives in prison.

"Fascinating and nuanced discussion of current California Innocence Project cases and past successes"

   Thomas Joel F

"WOW. Jeremy is incredible! The case narratives are astounding and infuriating in their injustice. In terms of overall information, awareness-raising, and sheer empathy value, it's tough to beat this presentation. This is by far one of the best I've ever seen. Well worth an hour-and maybe it will inspire some of us to support the CIP and their work."
