Because of expected litigation in several cases this fall, the Wrongful Convictions Clinic has expanded enrollment to 14 students for this semester. The Clinic recently filed two motions for evidentiary hearings, and a hearing in a third case was already scheduled for early September. More Clinic students are needed to assist with those hearings while also investigating the other clients’ claims of innocence. Some students in the clinic will have the opportunity to write and file a brief for one of the clinic cases in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. You can enroll for the Wrongful Convictions Clinic on ACES; contact Professor Theresa Newman or Jim Coleman if you have questions.
