What is Oregon Innocence Project?

Oregon Innocence Project (OIP) is a joint project of the Oregon Justice Resource Center (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based out of Lewis & Clark Law School) and Metropolitan Public Defender whose mission is to (1) exonerate the wrongfully convicted, (2) educate and train law students, and (3) promote legal reforms aimed at preventing wrongful convictions.

OIP is the only program within Oregon whose sole mission is to actively track inmates’ claims of innocence, investigate those claims, test DNA and other scientific evidence, and litigate when appropriate. 

OIP is administered by the Oregon Justice Resource Center (OJRC), a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization.
