    The Innocence Project was founded in 1992 by Barry C. Scheck and Peter J. Neufeld at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University to assist the wrongly convicted who could be proven innocent through DNA testing. The Innocence Project’s groundbreaking use of DNA technology to free innocent people has provided irrefutable proof that wrongful convictions are not isolated or rare events but instead arise from systemic defects. Now an independent nonprofit organization closely affiliated with Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University, the Innocence Project’s mission is to free the staggering numbers of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring substantive reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment. To learn more, please visit www.innocenceproject.org.

    ABOUT THE POSITION

    The Innocence Project (“IP”) is pleased to announce the availability of three fully funded (inclusive of benefits) two year fellowships starting in September of 2021 for recent law school graduates interested in a post-conviction litigation career, or for lawyers seeking to pivot into the post-conviction litigation space who are prepared to come in at a junior level. People who have completed or will have completed judicial clerkships are encouraged to apply. 

    The Post-Conviction Litigation Fellow will work directly with attorneys in the Post-Conviction Litigation Department to reinvestigate and litigate actual innocence claims.  Most often, our cases involve claims based on ineffective assistance of counsel, prosecutorial misconduct, false evidence, incentivized testimony, and newly discovered evidence.  Fellows will be involved in all aspects of the post-conviction innocence litigation, including fact-finding, working with a range of experts and investigators, and litigating in trial and appellate courts.

    The duties of this position require approximately 40 hours of work per week to be performed in-office (remote working is currently supported, consistent with pandemic-related social distancing precautions, but we expect to return to the office before fall of 2021), plus evening and weekend work as needed.
