AUGUST: California Innocence Project
AUGUST: California Innocence ProjectThis organization was started here in San Diego at the Cal Western School of Law and they tirelessly fight to release wrongfully committed inmates. They also advocate for the laws to change that allow for so many wrongful convictions to go through and have an educational component wherein they are teaching future lawyers to be more clued in to the prejudiced laws that cause wrongful convictions. They review over 2,000 cases of proclaimed innocence a year and fight for the ones they feel they can support legally. The Innocence Project is always looking for lawyers, expert witnesses and Investigators as well as high school, college and law school students interested in criminal and post-conviction law.
