Arizona incarcerates more people per capita than any other Western state and ranks sixth in the country. The Post-Conviction Clinic investigates claims of wrongful conviction and manifest injustice from prisoners convicted of crimes in Arizona.
Post-conviction work is a specialized practice area that delves into both fundamental and nuanced aspects of criminal law and criminal procedure? one that is becoming increasingly vital. More than 400 prisoners nationwide have been exonerated either in full or in part by DNA testing, and more than 1,500 people have been exonerated by other means. Your support helps cover the cost of legal fees, DNA testing, and other services provided by the clinic.
