Undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students at UIS can participate in Illinois Innocence Project activities and earn credit in several ways:
- By taking LES 488 – ECCE: Conviction of the Innocent, a multi-disciplinary 4-hour credit ECCE course regularly taught by Innocence Project faculty
- Through credit-generated tutorials or clinicals
- Through Internships and Prior Learning (IPL) program
2015-2016 Project Student Volunteers
UIS undergraduates and law students from the state’s three public law schools work alongside IIP attorneys to review, evaluate and, where strong evidence of actual innocence exists, investigate and legally pursue claims of innocence.
