Medill Innocence Project
The Medill Innocence Project at Northwestern, which looks into prisoners’ cases, has helped free several wrongfully convicted inmates over the years.
Northwestern University has 10 days to file an appeal, following a judge’s ruling ordering Medill students turn over their communication regarding a convicted murderer.
Northwestern University says a journalism professor known for helping free prisoners on death row has “undermined” the university’s integrity with lies and false statements.
David Protess and his students at Northwestern University have helped free innocent men from Illinois prisons. But now, it seems that the professor and the university are at odds.
