JUSTICE PROJECT.  If you would like an exciting, educational and worthwhile experience, please consider participating in the Justice Project. The Project assists inmates in the Arizona State Prison where there is a claim of innocence or where it appears that there has been a miscarriage of justice. The Project is a statewide program consisting of volunteer law students (from here and ASU) and lawyers. Teams of law students and lawyers are formed to work on the cases. It is an opportunity to work with some of the very best criminal defense lawyers in Tucson and with clients who desperately need your help. In addition to digging into a case to uncover the problems/errors, you will hopefully have an opportunity to visit your client in the state prison. Since students (as well as the lawyers) work on Justice Project cases on a volunteer basis, the program is open to 1Ls, 2Ls and 3Ls. If interested, please come to a meeting on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, at NOON in ROOM 201. Larry Hammond, an attorney with the Phoenix law firm of Osborn Maledon and head of the Justice Project, will be here for the meeting. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Andy Silverman, silverman@law.arizona.edu.
