Wrongful Convictions of the Innocent: Causes and Remedies

GENINT 731.326

Osher (50+). This course examines wrongful convictions in the U.S.


About this course:

This course examines how American courts wrongfully convict innocent people of violent crimes. Through discussion with exonerees (those proven innocent and freed after being wrongfully convicted) and the attorneys who worked on their behalf, we explore actual cases that highlight the recurring factors leading to miscarriages of justice. We also study the proposed remedies. While these cases are sensational and tragic, they provide learning opportunities.
