Indiana University McKinney Wrongful Conviction Clinic
Wrongful Conviction Clinic (WCC) is a law clinic at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law that helps to exonerate innocent people from prison. Law students represent clients claiming actual innocence seeking relief in state post-conviction and federal habeas proceedings. The classroom component focuses on the disturbing questions raised by wrongful convictions. Legal remedies are often limited for persons in prison as a result of convictions based on false science. If you are willing to work hard in a complex legal and factual context, the WCC is open through the regular registration process. They help overturn wrongful convictions, obtain disability benefits for those who desperately need them, and ensure indigent clients get adequate representation during the appeals process. The Law Clinic at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law does not give advice or accept cases at the school. The Law Clinic assists other agencies with the client caseloads they already have. The organizations listed on their website may be able to help individuals seeking legal assistance in the state of Indiana.
