WMU-Cooley Law School Innocence Project

Accepts cases of actual innocence in Michigan; DNA cases only; must be in custody; no time requirement. The Cooley Innocence Project is part of the Innocence Network, which has been credited with the release of over 329 wrongfully accused prisoners mainly through the use of DNA testing. As Innocence Project interns, students review case files, screen applications, investigate facts, conduct interviews, analyze cases, and represent innocent clients in court. Students assist assigned attorneys with research and pleadings for post-conviction proceedings. Click here for more information about the Cooley Innocence Project.
