THIS CLASS IS RESTRICTED to students who have formally applied to and been accepted to the Wrongful Convictions Clinic. Students engage in screening applications from prisoners claiming innocence who have requested help from the New England Innocence Project. This may involve reading prisoner questionnaires, pleadings and court opinions in the case, legal research and analysis of the requirements for obtaining a new trial, review of attorney files, and search for forensic evidence in the case. Students meet bi-weekly with the clinic instructor and can expect to spend five hours per week on clinic work. Case work typically continues through the full year, however, if investigation of the prisoner's case finishes earlier, the clinic work will end at that time. Students receive one pass/fail credit for each full semester of participation, with the fall grade deferred until the work is completed. Hours spent on clinic work in the spring semester that do not receive credit may be counted towards the School's Pro Bono Pledge. In addition to their fieldwork the clinic will meet at a mutually agreed upon date and time based on the schedules of all enrolled students. NOTE: This Clinic counts toward the 6 credit Experiential Learning requirement. NOTE: Students must register for the same section in both fall and spring semesters.
