Center on Wrongful Convictions


The Center on Wrongful Convictions is dedicated to representing individuals who have been wrongfully convicted of crimes. It was begun at Northwestern University in 1998 under the auspices of Lawrence C. Marshall, a law professor. The group joined forces with the Innocence Project in 2000 to nationalize local projects in different states. Over 200 cases a month are sent to the Center but only 1% are actually handled due to staffing levels.
