NCIP is ecstatic to be up and running in a new office located in Santa Clara Law’s Charney Hall. We are excited and grateful to continue our work to promote a more fair, effective, and compassionate criminal justice system under the same roof as our law school colleagues as we join together to train future lawyers. We look forward to sharing our new space with 15 clinical students this fall.  

NCIP External Relations Director Lori Reinauer and Associate Director Todd Fries adorn NCIP’s wall with the words “exonerate. educate. reform.”

Charney Hall Highlights

  • Silicon Valley Connections: Greater visibility offered by state-of-the-art office space facilitates the creation of new engagement and partnership opportunities with Silicon Valley connections
  • Collaborative and Clinical Spaces: Provides the right setting for the hands-on learning of students enrolled in our unique, year-long course
  • Latest Technology: Incorporates emerging technologies which drive communication, collaboration, and research

“This is a historic moment in the history of the Law School…In Santa Clara Law’s 100-plus years of operation, it has been more than 40 years since we have had almost all of our programs under one roof. We are thrilled at the possibilities that this new building offers our students, faculty, and staff. The enthusiasm and momentum is palpable.”
-Santa Clara Law Dean, Lisa Kloppenberg
