Barry Scheck '74 Discusses Death Penalty Issues and the Innocence Project
On Monday, November 8, Professor Barry Scheck '74, a 2004-05 scholar-in-residence with the Center for Social Justice, talked about his work with the Innocence Project in a Ruth Chance Lecture. Professor Scheck is co-founder and director of the Innocence Project at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City. The Innocence Project was set up in 1992 as a non-profit legal clinic to handle cases where post-conviction DNA testing of evidence can yield conclusive proof of innocence.

Professor Scheck also discussed death penalty issues with Death Penalty Clinic Director Elisabeth Semel, Professor Jonathan Simon and Lecturer Nina Rivkind. The discussion took place from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Goldberg Room and was followed by a reception. For more information, please visit the Center for Social Justice website.
