INTERNATIONAL CASEWORK

The California Innocence Project been involved in International Casework for more than a decade.  The Project has been deeply involved in assisting in the launching of innocence organizations around the world, particularly in Latin America (see REDInocente.org).  The Project has also been involved in cases where innocent people are locked up outside the United States.  However, due to the significant resources and expertise required in international cases, the California Innocence Project does not take on these cases alone, nor do we accept international cases for review directly from potential clients.  The Project only takes on these cases in partnership with competent organizations such as the David House Agency, an international crisis resource organization.
