Innocence Project

Oklahoma City University Law School is working to establish an Innocence Project.

Based at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, the Innocence Project established in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld is marking a significant achievement, the exoneration of its 250th client. To commemorate the occasion, the New York based project released 250 Exonerated, Too Many Wrongfully Convicted on Feb. 4, 2010. The report details each one of the 250 DNA exoneration cases and includes statistics on common causes of the wrongful convictions.
