Average Reviews


The Michigan Innocence Clinic is a law clinic at the University of Michigan Law School that focuses on innocence cases where there is no DNA to be tested. Innocence Clinic students work on all aspects of the cases, including investigating new evidence, researching and writing briefs, arguing court motions and conducting evidentiary hearings. The clinic’s work spans all levels of state and federal courts. Michigan Innocence Clinic recommends that applications for review by the Innocence Clinic be completed by the convicted person. However, it is also permissible to have the application completed by a friend or family member. When completing the application, applicants are encouraged to make sure their answers are legible. Feel free to use a typewriter if needed. Be clear about what relevant documents are available and who has them. Do not send any supporting materials along with an application. The clinic will request additional materials if they need them.
