As the field of innocence scholarship continues to grow, we are excited by the launch of a new scholarly journal dedicated to this area of research. The Wrongful Conviction Law Review will be launching this year. From the website:

“The WCLR is an open source peer reviewed international journal focusing on wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justice. While we are fundamentally a law review, we welcome submissions from other disciplines (e.g. criminology, sociology, psychology etc.). We aim to be the foremost repository of articles, book reviews and case commentaries in our field of endeavour. The Review has a preference for submitted papers to be between 8,000 and 12,000 words. Longer papers will be published where the length is justified. Matters of style and citation are governed by the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (8th ed.) or APA (7th ed.).

We will publish high-quality, original, empirical and theoretical research.

The WCLR seeks to foster dialogue and collaberation between scholars, jurists and practitioners.”
