The Wisconsin Innocence Project, or WIP, seeks to exonerate the innocent and to train the next generation of legal leaders.

Each year, our student teams, under the supervision of expert attorneys, investigate and litigate claims of innocence. Students visit prisons. Students interview witnesses. They consult forensic experts; they draft appellate briefs; and they argue dispositive motions. In short, WIP provides students with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to participate in each step of solving a real-life mystery.

Our student teams have successfully secured the release of more than 30 wrongfully-convicted persons. Our success has brought about national recognition. We have received multi-million dollar grants from federal agencies such as the National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Administration.

Vasquez Release

We've pioneered exonerations based upon faulty forensic science, and we've recently launched a first-in-the-nation program, funded by the United States Department of Justice, that seeks to address wrongful convictions in Wisconsin's Latino community.
