Conviction Integrity Units: Strategies and Models (Network Members Only)

Location: Nautilus 5
Date: Fri, March 24
Time: 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM

In this closed session, we hope to have a frank and creative discussion about building effective CIU's, and how Network members can best represent their clients when they present a case to a CIU and/or undertake a joint re-investigation of a wrongful conviction. Barry will summarize the fundamentals of his forthcoming law review article about best practices in CIU's and how they have operated most effectively to date. We'd like to have members' feedback on the merits of this proposal and ways to improve it. Other topics will include building CIU's in smaller offices, the political challenges of working with CIUs, and confidentiality concerns.
