Innocence Day

Loyola's Project for the Innocent (LPI) hosted an Innocence Day panel of exonorees that was featured on KNBC-TV. The event was co-hosted by Death Penalty Focus. Exonorees (pictured above) Kash Register, Obie Anthony, Gloria Killiam and Nick Yarris – who collectively spent more than 80 years in prison for crimes they did not commit – discussed their incredible journeys to freedom. Adjunct Professor Joe Trigilio, a deputy federal public defender, moderated the panel discussion. 

“These men have compelling stories that should be heard by everyone,” said Visiting Professor Lara Bazelon, director of the LPI. “By learning about past injustices, we can prevent future ones." 

Pico Union Community Center Outreach Event

In the spirit of Loyola Law School's commitment to social justice, Loyola's Project for the Innocent hosted an event at the Pico Union Community Center on August 25 to help community members who have friends or family members in custody.  Students honed their interviewing skills, attendees got legal advice and support, and the Project continued its mission of helping those most in need.  It was a great success!
