The Chicago Innocence Center

How would you describe your employer in one paragraph? What’s the elevator pitch?
The Chicago Innocence Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to investigating cases in which prisoners may have been convicted of crimes they did not commit. The Innocence Center does not represent clients in criminal cases, but once an investigation is completed and evidence of innocence gathered, outside counsel may bring that evidence to court. The fundamental goal of the organization is to expose and remedy wrongdoing by the criminal justice system.
