The newly-forming Center for the Global Study of Wrongful Conviction at the University of Cincinnati College of Law has launched a new blog, focused on wrongful conviction and actual innocence issues in an international context. We’ll be featuring a weekly roundup of international posts from the new site – look for them on Wednesdays in the future – and encourage you to watch the blog for their U.S. innocence news as well.
Highlights from the past week include:
