The Joseph Loundy Human Rights Project presents "Wrongful Convictions," a speaker series where distinguished scholars and wrongfully convicted individuals come together to speak about miscarriages of justice, wrongful convictions, and where the system fails.

This event features Steven Drizin, Clinical Professor of Law and Associate Director, Bluhm Legal Clinic, at Northwestern University. He is also the Legal Director at the Center on Wrongful Convictions, Northwestern University and cofounder of the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth, Northwestern University. Mr. Drizin's research interests involve the study of false confessions and juvenile justice. His policy work focuses on supporting efforts to require law enforcement agencies to electronically record custodial interrogations.
