Innocent Project Argentina

Organization Overview

The Innocence Project, founded in 1992 by Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, is an international litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.  The Innocence Project’s mission is to free the staggering number of innocent people who remain incarcerated and to bring reform to the system responsible for their unjust imprisonment. In Argentina, Innocence Project focused on three main objectives: research, analysis, and litigation for cases of people who have been wrongfully convicted; the promotion of related legislature and public policy; and the training of students on this area of law.

Intern Responsibilities:

Research and Analysis Intern
The IIP intern will conduct research and write reports about misidentification and its frequency within the criminal justice system, as well as its role in the Argentine legal system. The intern may also register petitions for cases that are submitted to Innocence Project Argentina and write memos detailing decisions regarding whether to represent the petitioners or not, and the justification for their final decision.

Qualifications: 
The ideal candidate will have an interest in justice and a background in research
Minimum Spanish level required: Intermediate

This internship is offered in collaboration with Puentes Abroad. In the internship through Puentes, interns will undertake project-based work that is designed to directly contribute to one of the internship site’s key work areas so that they gain real experience and know-how through substantial, mission-driven work.  The internships are overseen by Puentes and are complemented by homestay housing.
