Pennsylvania Innocence Project Opens Pittsburgh Office with Students from Duquesne and Pitt Law
Pitt Law students will work to help exonerate wrongfully convicted clients at the Pennsylvania Innocence Project's new Pittsburgh office, which opened in September. The office, located at Duquesne University School of Law, will allow students from both Duquesne and Pitt Law to earn law school credit by examining cases and seeking ways to prove innocence to exonerate clients. Pitt Law students Sean Champagne (3L) and Kyle Watson (3L) are part of the inaugural cohort of students working at the office.
The official launch will be celebrated from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at a reception in The Tower at PNC Plaza in downtown Pittsburgh.
