Duke Law Podcast | A framework for 'Closing International Law's Innocence Gap'

In 'Closing International Law's Innocence Gap,' Duke Law Clinical Professor Jayne Huckerby, Professor Laurence Helfer, and Professor Brandon Garrett argue that now is the time to close a gap in how national criminal legal systems address post-conviction claims of factual innocence. They build a substantive case for recognizing a new international human right and detail the advantages of doing such, offering derivative and freestanding approaches, as well as a framework for adapting the right to national models.
