Task Force on Wrongful Convictions

Building upon NYSBA’s ground-breaking 2009 report which made valuable recommendations to improve the administration of justice and shed light on what is a profoundly serious and continuing problem, this task force will update the 2009 report with recommendations based upon new developments, technology, science, experience, and judicial decisions and make affirmative recommendations to reduce the likelihood of wrongful convictions.
