Northern California Innocence Project
This Day of Giving, help us continue to exonerate, educate, and reform


The Northern California Innocence Project (NCIP) is both a non-profit law firm that works to obtain the freedom of innocent people and a legal clinic offered to students of Santa Clara Law. NCIP offers law students the chance to do life-changing work while learning how to practice law.


Exonerating an innocent person is a painstaking task. It takes time, it takes resources, and it takes perseverance. When NCIP began doing this work in 2001, people didn't believe wrongful convictions happened.  Since then, we have freed 24 innocent men and women and educated countless law students.


While we are grateful to have come so far since our humble beginnings, we know there is more work to do. NCIP has more than 40 active cases in various stages of investigation and litigation, a full policy agenda, and a new class of future lawyers to educate.


Please help us continue our mission to promote a fair, effective, and compassionate, criminal justice system by making a gift today.
