Featuring: Craig Cooley, Staff Attorney at the Innocence Project and Adjunct Professor, St. John's School of Law

Craig M. Cooley joined the Innocence Project as a Staff Attorney in August 2007. He represents clients in various states seeking access to post-conviction DNA testing and/or relief from their conviction based on exculpatory DNA evidence.

The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 to assist prisoners who could be proven innocent through DNA testing. The Innocence Project's groundbreaking use of DNA technology to free innocent people has provided irrefutable proof that wrongful convictions are not isolated or rare events but instead arise from systemic defects. Its' mission is nothing less than to free the staggering numbers of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring substantive reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment.

Pizza will be served.

Co-sponsored by the Public Interest Center and The St. John's Law Chapter of Amnesty International
