The Texas Tech Innocence Clinic, working in conjunction with the Innocence Project of Texas, provides students the opportunity to review convictions in complex, high-grade felony cases in the hopes of exonerating an innocent person who was wrongly convicted of a serious crime.
In October 2017, the Court of Criminal Appeals set aside the wrongful conviction of one of the Innocence Clinic’s clients Jesse Griffith. This extraordinary work was recently recognized on the National Registry for Exonerations. You can see the post here.
That is just one example of outstanding work that the Innocence Clinic does every day. Congratulations to all the Innocence Clinic students, and to Professors Allison Clayton (’07) and Pat Metze!
