Wrongful Convictions

This is a guide originally prepared for law students in a research seminar on wrongful convictions.

Getting Started

Picking a Topic

These books can help you select a successful topic and plan and organize your paper.

Schedule a PeRC (Personal Reference Consultation)

Law students may schedule a Personal Research Consultation ("PERC") with one of the librarians. A PERC allows for more extended research coaching, such as for course-related research, citation checking, or Note research.

A law librarian will contact you, probably within 24 hours after you submit your request. Please visit the reference desk in person or via email if you need a faster response.
