Since 1989, approximately 2,500 people have been wrongfully convicted in the United States. Wrongful convictions have become so commonplace there's nearly an exoneration every other day in this country. This course will explore the causes of wrongful convictions, including an examination of forensic sciences, eyewitness misidentification, false confessions, ineffective assistance of counsel, and government misconduct. Additionally, this course will review real case examples where the criminal justice system got it wrong and try to analyze and determine the root cause. Finally, this course seeks to educate attorneys on how to reduce wrongful convictions and improve the criminal justice system nationwide.
