Locally, we are affiliated with the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project (MAIP). MAIP reviews claims of actual innocence from inmates convicted in the criminal courts of Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, and considers both DNA and non-DNA claims of innocence. The Catholic University of America Chapter of the Innocence Project was founded in 2002. CUA has a clinic, as well as a student organization. American University's Washington College of Law, Georgetown University Law Center, Catholic University's Columbus School of Law, University of Virginia School of Law, Washington and Lee University School of Law, William & Mary Law also have student organization chapters at their respective law schools dedicated to advancing the mission of MAIP.
