Pro Bono Activity Details - University of Cambridge
The Innocence Project
The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.
The Innocence Project is an initiative where students work alongside practising criminal lawyers to review cases of alleged innocence, and look for possible grounds for appeal. Volunteering for the Innocence Project is one of the closest experiences to actual legal practice available to a student. The Project also seeks to challenge the assumption that our criminal justice system is flawless.
