This is What We Do


The Forensic Justice Project team strives to exonerate the innocent and works to reform the justice system by changing the way forensics are used in criminal cases, regardless of guilt or innocence.

This is Why We Do It


We know that our criminal justice system has relied on faulty forensic evidence to convict in this country for decades.  Mistakes have been proved hundreds of times through DNA testing resulting in exonerations where the innocent have walked out of prison decades after they went in.  Still, the law lags far behind when it comes to forensic evidence.

FJP operates at the intersection of science and the law.
