Almost every kid has experienced it: your parents yelling at you for something you didn’t do. They are absolutely sure that you did something wrong and there is no convincing them otherwise. It’s a horrible feeling. Now, imagine the legal system putting you in the same situation, but the consequence is a lengthy imprisonment for something you didn’t do. Tragically, this happens more often than we’d like to think. It’s likely impossible to have an effective judicial system that eliminates all false positives, but we can certainly do better. The Innocence Project is a non-profit organization that is putting DNA and forensic evidence to work to exonerate people who have been wrongly convicted.
The Innocence Project was started in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld and works in conjunction with the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University to serve people who may have been hopeless just a decade and a half ago.
To date, 218 people in the United States have been exonerated by DNA testing, including 16 who served time on death row. These people served an average of 12 years in prison before exoneration and release.
Most of these cases were overturned because “The Innocence Project’s full-time staff attorneys and Cardozo clinic students provided direct representation or critical assistance.” Although the idea of helping convicted criminals may seem unsavory at first, you must remember that “convicted” doesn’t necessarily mean guilty.
We don’t cover many entry-level jobs that are law related here on One Day, One Job, but The Innocence Project has a number of opportunities for new college graduates. They are located in New York City and are looking for a Paralegal, Policy Associate, and Communications Assistant. They’ve done a nice job with their website, and their Jobs page links to detailed descriptions for each opportunity. If you’re thinking about law school, but not quite ready to get started, a job at The Innocence Project might aid you considerably in the decision making process.
