Pennsylvania Innocence Project opens at Duquesne Law

Sunday, September 25, 2016

"Western Pennsylvania lawyers, law students and community members interested in supporting the exoneration of wrongfully convicted people and the prevention of innocent people being convicted now will be able to do so locally." 

The September 25, 2016 issue of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette details the Pennsylvania Innocence Project's new western office in Duquesne Law's Tribone Center for Clinical Legal Education and quotes the program's managing attorney in Pittsburgh, Elizabeth DeLosa, L'10.

DeLosa currently supervises six law students, two from Pitt Law and four from Duquesne Law, Jennifer Vogel, Kelsey Ayers, Kristi Heidel, and Susannah Glick. 

The article also details the statewide organization's plans to officially launch the program at a fundraiser on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., in the James Rohr Auditorium in PNC Tower downtown.
