UBC Innocence Project

 

CPA has a lengthy partnership with the UBC Innocence Project, working with lawyers and law students on post-conviction cases suspected of wrongful conviction. The goals of the project are to:

  • investigate claims of wrongful conviction;
  • identify potential miscarriages of justice;
  • assist in securing the release of individuals who have been wrongly convicted;
  • educate law students about the causes of wrongful conviction;
  • educate law students about the proper roles of professionals in the criminal justice system; and
  • provide skills training for law students conducting post-conviction review work.
