What We Do

The Exoneration Justice Clinic provides law students with real-world lawyering experience representing clients who were wrongfully convicted. By working in the clinic, students also gain invaluable insight into the criminal justice system.

The clinic provides clients who are exonerated access to a network of social support services, such as education and vocational training, transitional housing, and health care services, including mental health counseling, and other support programs. Access to a network of social services will assist the client in successfully reintegrating into society.

Finally, the Exoneration Justice Clinic works with innocence clinics to advocate for legislative reforms that will prevent wrongful convictions from happening in the first place.
