UH law school's 'Innocence Project' gets 10K grant

Advertiser Staff

The Hawai'i Innocence Project has received a $10,000 grant to help people wrongfully convicted of crimes.

The project is part of the University of Hawai'i's William S. Richardson School of Law. The funds, from the Hawai'i Justice Foundation, will help law students and professors pursue research.

The Hawai'i Innocence Project was established in 2005 through the California Innocence Project, which is part of the California Western School of Law.

For more information about the project, contact UH law professor Virginia Hench, 956-6547.
