2 men released from prison with help from Loyola Law School

Loyola’s Project for the Innocent (LPI) is the only wrongful conviction clinic dedicated to serving Los Angeles County, the leader in felony convictions in a state where almost 700 individuals have been proven wrongfully convicted since 1989. LPI works to get those who are languishing in prison for crimes they did not commit out of jail.

Not only is LPI reshaping the lives of their clients and their families, they do so while training the next generation of change agents, leaders, and advocates.
