An Innocence Project is a group of students investigating, normally under the supervision of a practising lawyer, the case of a convicted person maintaining innocence, who has exhausted the initial appeals process. Students aim to find evidence that will assist them in making an application to the CCRC for that person’s case to be reviewed for referral back to the Court of Appeal.
