What is the Innocence Project(R)'s mission?

The UNC Law Innocence Project(R) is dedicated to reviewing and investigating the innocence claims made by prisoners incarcerated in North Carolina. The fundamental goal of the project is to assist prisoners in challenging their wrongful convictions, where they exist. We are focused squarely on assisting prisoners who have valid innocence claims to be investigated. The project seeks to give law students the opportunity to review, investigate, and make recommendations on real criminal cases.

What is the Innocence Project(R) at UNC?

  • The UNC Law Innocence Project(R) works in concert with the Innocence Projects at top schools across the state.
  • The UNC Project is one of several Innocence Projects nationwide that investigates innocence claims made by prison inmates.
  • The Project is affiliated with the National Innocence Project in New York.

What are some of the Innocence Project(R)'s Accomplishments?
