If you are stuck with a car that is a lemon or if an electronics store won't repair the big screen television that you bought from it, you may need to hire an attorney to help resolve the dispute.

DNA Testing

The Innocence Project is a non-profit legal clinic that uses DNA testing to free wrongfully convicted prisoners, especially inmates on death row. Attorneys supervise law students, who handle the cases. The project takes only cases in which the DNA testing of sperm, blood, saliva, skin, or hair can provide conclusive proof of the inmate's innocence. In some cases, the DNA used to convict has been lost or destroyed or it is too tainted to be properly tested. The project has been in existence since 1999, and 153 inmates were exonerated by November 2004. Many of these inmates had served decades in prison for crimes they did not commit. All legal services provided by the Innocence Project are without charge or pro bono. Read the rest of this entry »
