Center for Criminal Justice
Center for Criminal Justice and Professional Responsibility
The Duke Center for Criminal Justice and Professional Responsibility is devoted to the promotion of justice in criminal cases and to teaching and training students, lawyers, prosecutors, judges, and the general public to identify, remedy, and prevent the wrongful conviction of innocent people.
The center pursues these goals through a series of coordinated academic, advocacy, and public activities: through courses offered to high school, college, and law students; professional seminars and conferences; published papers; extra-curricular programs; and public education. Duke Law School’s Wrongful Convictions Clinic and student-run Innocence Project represent the center’s chief teaching components.
