The Montana Innocence Project is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to exonerating the innocent and preventing wrongful convictions. We use DNA and other evidence to advance credible claims of innocence through our interdisciplinary Innocence Clinic based at the University of Montana School of Law. We also work to improve our criminal justice system through proven public policy reforms, and through training and education for attorneys, law enforcement and other Montanans across the state.
Welcome to our web site, where you can learn more about us and get involved. Explore Montana innocence cases, along with a wide range of national issues related to wrongful conviction. We also encourage you to support us financially, get involved as a volunteer or contact us with questions.
Thank you for your interest in our work, and please join our efforts to help the innocent and improve the American justice system.
Our efforts are possible thanks to major support from the Angora Ridge Foundation and the U.S. Department of Justice BJA Wrongful Conviction Review Program, as well as the Ila B. Dousman Fund, the Montana Justice Foundation, Oro Y Plata Foundation, Sample Foundation, the University of Montana School of Law, and many individuals across the state. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity, we rely on tax-deductible donations to fund our work.
