The Innocence Delaware Legal Clinic partners with the non-profit organization Innocence Delaware that provides representation to people unjustly incarcerated in Delaware for crimes they did not commit. This is a full year clinic for a total of 7 credits (3 in the fall, 4 in the spring).
What Students Do – Students will assist Innocence Delaware in their mission by learning post-conviction law and practicing innocence work. Students will work under the supervision of Clinic Director Judith Ritter, Clinic Professor Romie Griesmer, and the Executive Director of Innocence Delaware. Innocence work may involve screening requests for representation, interviewing clients, conducting investigations, doing legal research, and preparing legal pleadings.
