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 Jonathan Jay Koehler, who is Beatrice Kuhn Professor of Law at Northwestern University. Dr. Koehler's areas of interest include behavioral decision theory, quantitative reasoning in the courtroom, and forensic science. His work shows how cognitive bias and statistical error lead to mistakes in the criminal justice system.
