Conference - exonerated in California

Our readers in the USA might be interested in an upcoming conference: The Faces of Wrongful Conviction - A conference examining wrongful convictions and the administration of the death penalty in California.

It will be held on Friday April 7 - Sunday April 9, 2006, at UCLA Law School, Los Angeles, CA.

Conference organisers promise two full days of exciting seminars, a Friday night VIP event and a one-night only presentation of "The Exonerated". From the conference publicity:
The purpose of this conference is to illustrate both the problem of wrongful conviction and the unfair application of the death penalty in California and to mobilize for change. Since 1990, over 200 people have been wrongfully convicted and exonerated in California. This conference will facilitate the largest gathering of California's exonerees ever. In addition, new research discussing the causes and prevalence of wrongful conviction in California and demonstrating systemic racial and geographic disparities in the application of the death penalty in this state will be presented.
