  • "Someone should be helping them so that they meet the requirements. Not everyone in prison has the education how to do this correctly."

    New York's clemency program is slow and out of grasp for many inmates. Despite this, Prof. Steve Zeidman and CUNY Law's Defenders Clinic are achieving results. By working closely with their clients, they're able to create strong, successful cases. Prof. Zeidman and the clinic's approach are leading the way for clemency reform in NY.
