Our adversarial system currently accepts that innocent persons will be convicted of crimes. This symposium examined an entirely novel approach to substantially reducing the system failures that lead to wrongful convictions: the use of pre-trial innocence procedures and bureaus meant to limit the number of convictions of innocent people, especially the indigent, by allowing defendants to establish their innocence prior to or at trial. Leading scholars and practitioners examine whether or how such procedures could spare innocent defendants from long prison terms in a system where establishing a person’s innocence following conviction is extremely difficult. Papers from the symposium have been published in an issue of the New York Law School Law Review. To read the issue click here.
