Oklahoma Innocence Project Up and Running

One month after opening its doors, the Oklahoma Innocence Project (OIP) at Oklahoma City University School of Law is reviewing more than 100 potential cases of wrongful conviction.

When Lawrence K. Hellman, the former Oklahoma City University School of Law Dean, realized two years ago that Oklahoma was one of only a handful of states without a dedicated agency to address wrongful convictions, he began the campaign for the state’s innocence clinic. Pictured above are staff, supporters, faculty and advisors at a recent OIP open house.

Tiffany Murphy, formerly of the Midwestern Innocence Project, heads the OIP as director. Murphy brings experience from her roles as the Midwestern Innocence Project’s legal director and interim executive director.

The OIP brings together law students, attorneys and the project’s director to identify and help remedy cases of wrongful convictions.
