Actual Innocence Clinic

Additional Course Information

Fall 2014 Course Description

Taught by Tiffany Dowling

The Clinic is open to students who have completed their first two semesters.

6 credits (pass/fail)

Students must register for Law 397C and 397D, for a total of six credits.


The Actual Innocence Clinic is sponsored by the Texas Center for Actual Innocence (TCAI), which is housed at the Law School. The officers of TCAI co-teach the clinic, and the officers and the TCAI Staff Attorney supervise clinic students. TCAI uses a very strict definition of “actual innocence” in screening cases.
