About LAI

A number of innocence projects work around the country (and the world) to free those in prison for crimes they did not commit. However, there are fewer, if any, resources for persons once exonerated. Life After Innocence at Loyola University Chicago follows up with such exonerees to offer guidance, pro bono legal services and additional support on all levels. Students and faculty work with recent exonerees to obtain expungement of their records, find housing, search for employment, obtain counseling, procure identification, teach computer and cell phone skills, obtain medical treatment, aid in gaining Certificates of Innocence, and work with money managers to deal with any state funds or civil verdicts received after release.
