What is Washington Innocence Project’s relationship with the University of Washington?

We have transitioned from being a project of the University of Washington to an independent 501(c)(3) organization. As we have grown, we determined that we needed to evolve from a university-based clinic to operate as a full-functioning law firm in order to best serve innocent people in our state. While the future of the clinic has not yet been defined, we are grateful for the current support of the University of Washington to continue to be housed within Gates Hall. With time and the development of our resources, we look forward to offering externship opportunities to law students throughout Washington State.
