Paige Kaneb

Assistant Clinical Professor, Northern California Innocence Project 

As a member of NCIP since 2007, Paige has served as lead attorney in two cases resulting in exonerations, and was an important member of the legal team that secured the exonerations of two additional men.  All four exonorees were convicted of murder and together served over 65 years in prison for crimes they did not commit. Paige also second-chaired a trial in which the client was acquitted of homicide charges.

At NCIP, Paige works with and supervises law students.  Together, they investigate claims of innocence, interview witnesses and clients, draft and argue motions for DNA testing and petitions for writs of habeas corpus, and exonerate the wrongfully convicted. Paige also speaks to various organizations and audiences about the causes of wrongful convictions, and assists exonerees in integrating back into the world.

Prior to working at the Innocence Project, Paige interned at the Contra Costa Alternate Defender’s Office as a law clerk, and worked for the Institute for Global Justice researching ways to sue and prosecute oil companies and banks associated with extreme human rights abuses.
