Actual Innocence Awareness Database
April 11, 2007 at 2:07 PM
The Tarlton Law Library at the University of Texas has produced the Actual Innocence Awareness Database. It includes books, articles, legislation, websites, and reports about wrongful convictions. Materials are grouped by topic: forensics, eyewitness IDs, police/prosecutorial misconduct, etc. The database is also searchable by author, title, summary, etc. Thanks to Melissa Bernstein at the Tarlton Law Library for her post to Law-Lib, the law librarian’s listserv, with information about the database.
The Actual Innocence Awareness Database includes a link to the web page of the Northern California Innocence Project (NCIP). See the Santa Clara University Law School webpages for information about the NCIP’s recent successful efforts on behalf of Ken Foley.
