Griffith Law Innocence Project

Griffith Law Innocence Project – Webinar
Date: Wednesday, March 15, 2023
Time: 7 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. MT / 4 p.m. PT
Rubin “Hurricane” Carter
Hurricane Carter (1937–2014) was a supporter of the Griffith University Innocence Project.
One-time prize-winning welterweight Rubin “Hurricane” Carter fought for more than 20 years to clear his name for a crime he did not commit. Rubin’s story was immortalized in the ’70s hit song “Hurricane” by Bob Dylan Hurricane, and more recently, in the movie of the same name starring Denzel Washington.
Following his release from prison, where he narrowly escaped the electric chair, Rubin Carter worked tirelessly to ensure others did not suffer the same plight he endured. He helped found the Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted in Canada and strongly endorsed the Griffith University Innocence Project, which he visited in 2003.
Please join us to hear about some of the fascinating cases Griffith Law students have had experience with through volunteering with the Innocence Project.
