Innocence Project director to speak at Clark University, April 20:
The California Innocence Project, founded in 1999, espouses three goals:
to free innocent people from prison
to help train law students to become great lawyers
and to change laws and procedures to decrease the number of wrongful convictions and improve the justice system.
The California Innocence Project’s founding director, Justin P. Brooks, will talk about the organization’s crucial efforts to accomplish those key goals, during a talk at Clark University, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 20, in the Higgins Lounge at Dana Commons, Maywood and Florence streets.
This event, free and open to the public, is sponsored by Clark’s Study Abroad and LEEP Center, and by CAPA – The Global Education Network.
Brooks is executive director at the Institute for Criminal Defense Advocacy and professor of law at the California Western School of Law, in San Diego, where he also directs the California Innocence Project, a law school clinic that is a founding member of global Innocence Network and has helped launch organizations throughout Latin America.
“Over the years, it has given me great joy to see our work go global in an ‘innocence movement’ that grows bigger and stronger every day,” Brooks writes.
Brooks has spent his career litigating wrongful conviction cases. He recently was featured in Time magazine, and presented popular TED Talks. His high-profile cases include the exoneration of Brian Banks, a former NFL player wrongly convicted of rape when in high school.
Brooks teaches a global seminar, titled “Wrongful Conviction,” at the CAPA London Study Center.
The seminar is open to Clark University students.
Global Seminars are three to four-week, 1-2 unit summer programs providing students with intensive study and experiential opportunities.
