Levenson on Post-Conviction Discovery, Investigation, and Litigation

Levenson LaurieLaurie L. Levenson (Loyola Law School Los Angeles) has posted Searching for Injustice: The Challenge of Post-Conviction Discovery, Investigation, and Litigation (Southern California Law Review, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

One of the biggest challenges for our criminal justice system today is dealing with post-conviction challenges in state and federal courts. In order to effectively and fairly address these challenges, we need changes in our post-conviction discovery, investigation and litigation procedures. Current procedures often choose finality over accuracy. This paper suggests reforms, including a move toward a more collaborative post-conviction process.

Finally, a Paper worth its weight in gold. Now, if we could only get the entire country on board. Thanks from the 'Un-exoneratables'.
