What we do
- We are committed to freeing innocent persons who have been wrongly convicted in Australia.
- We will take on cases where initial investigations support inmates' assertions that they have been wrongly convicted and where innocence may be established through the use of DNA technology.
Griffith University Innocence Project is committed to freeing innocent persons who have been wrongly convicted.
- By working to correct failures in our criminal justice system, we will foster an Australian legal culture that champions the defence of the innocent, and helps protect the marginalised and oppressed.
- Through working with law students, the Project will invest in lawyers of the future who uphold the values of truth in justice.
Freedom is something that can be taken for granted. Until it is taken away. - Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter
