Common Law is a new podcast sponsored by UVA School of Law and hosted by Dean Risa Goluboff and Vice Dean Leslie Kendrick.
The first episode of the season features a conversation between best-selling author John Grisham and Professor Deirdre Enright of the Innocence Project at UVA. Mr. Grisham and Professor Enright discuss the many reasons for wrongful convictions, the future of criminal law, and delve into specifics of some the cases they’ve shined a light on.
“It’s fairly easy to send an innocent person to prison,” Grisham says in Episode One. “And it’s virtually impossible to get them out once they’re there.”
