The purpose of the Wrongful Conviction Review Program is to  provide high quality and efficient representation for potentially  wrongfully convicted defendants in post-conviction claims of innocence.    The goals of this initiative are to:  provide quality representation to  those who may have been wrongfully convicted; alleviate burdens placed  on the criminal justice system through costly and prolonged  post-conviction litigation; and identify whenever possible, the actual  perpetrator of the crime.
