Spring 2016 KU Law Magazine

Cover: The Project

As the Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence marks its 50th anniversary, a few of its more than 800 alumni reflect on their experiences toiling over cases with complex facts and long odds. Occasionally, their labor results in monumental victories like the recent exoneration of Floyd Bledsoe, who served 16 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. But the Project’s benefits to students, clients and the justice system cannot be adequately measured in headline-grabbing wins.

Plus Class Notes and the Volunteer Honor Roll.
