Keith Findley, co-director of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, will move from the clinical faculty at the UW Law School in July to join the tenure -track faculty this summer. He is currently Clinical Professor of Law in the Law School's Frank J. Remington Center, where he serves as research director for the Remington Center and the co-director of the Wisconsin Innocence Project. Prior to joining UW Law School, Findley worked as an Assistant State Public Defender in Wisconsin, both in the Appellate and Trial Divisions. Findley’s research focuses on wrongful convictions, forensic science and the law, eyewitness identification procedures, and interrogation and false confessions.
“Keith is a great teacher and scholar,” said UW Law School Dean Margaret Raymond. “His work in the Innocence Project has been extraordinary, and he’s a remarkable clinical teacher. His work on law and forensic science and law and science more broadly adds a very significant dimension to our faculty. We’re delighted that he’ll be continuing as a member of the Wisconsin faculty in his new role, which will expand the time available for his already robust scholarly reflections on innocence and on the criminal justice system generally. We welcome his continuing contributions to our community and intellectual life.”
Findley will teach Wrongful Convictions, Evidence, and Criminal Procedure.
