The New England Innocence Project is grateful to everyone who participated in and attended our fourth annual innocence training. Each year, NEIP’s training offers the most current information about causes of wrongful convictions, related cases, and relevant litigation. This year’s event, which took place on Friday, July 11 at the Goodwin Procter Conference Center, was a huge success. Our expert speakers provided a range of interesting and interactive presentations attended by over 100 attorneys, prosecutors, law enforcers, and others. This year’s topics included CODIS 101, Canine Scent Detection in the Forensic Arena, FBI Hair Analysis, and State of the Science 5 Years after the NAS Report. We were lucky to welcome our key note speaker, Glenn Cunha, the Massachusetts Inspector General. We have received so much positive feedback about the presentations at the training. We’d like to give a special thank you to Sidney Collins, Terri Bright, Chris Fabricant, Lisa Kavanaugh, and Glenn Cunha for their outstanding and memorable work. We’d also like to thank Goodwin Procter for their continued support hosting us. We are so excited for next year’s training and can’t wait to see everyone there! Thanks again to everyone who participated in the event, it was a great success!
