Actual Innocence Clinic

Student Experience

“Participating in the Actual Innocence Clinic at the University of Texas School of Law has been the high-point of my experience as a law student. In the past few months I have learned more about how criminal law actually operates in the ‘real world’ than in all my other classes combined.”
—Andy Garbe, ’08

“In the Clinic, I was able to retrace the steps of cases from the initial police reports to the trial transcripts to writs of habeas corpus and the appellate decisions on them. I highly recommend the Clinic, not only for those who want to become criminal defense attorneys, but also for anyone who wants to get a look at the guts of the Texas penal system.”
—Brooke McGuire, ’08
