Spring 2024 Reading Group

Wrongful Convictions: Current Research and Advocacy Strategies

Prerequisite: None

Exam Type: No Exam

The rise of DNA technology in the 1980s has provided scientific proof for something scholars have long suspected: that all too often defendants are convicted of crimes they did not commit. This reading group will take a deep dive into why this happens and what we can do about it by exploring the latest research and advocacy strategies in the fight to free the innocent from prison.

Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: January 25, February 8, February 22, March 7, March 28, April 11.
