Registration for the 2018 Conference is now open!


The Innocence Network Conference is a national event that brings together members of the innocence movement and others for two days of powerful plenary and breakout sessions. The conference is always a special gathering, but this year will be all the more significant as we are meeting in Memphis during the 50th anniversary year of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The theme of this year’s conference will be Race and Wrongful Convictions, and we are planning a host of educational sessions that will address the historic fight for civil rights and our movement’s fight for justice for the innocent today. Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit is available in Tennessee. Click here to see eligible sessions. We are also pleased to announce our keynote speaker will be Jeffery Robinson, Deputy Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union and Director of the Trone Center for Justice and Equality. Click here to learn more about him and his contribution to criminal justice reform.

At the conclusion of the conference, all registrants are welcome to participate in our march to the Lorraine Motel, now the National Civil Rights Museum where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated 50 years ago. Closing event tickets are not required for the march.

Please contact Virginia Taddoni with any questions about registration. Please contact Shanah Kennedy Hobson with any questions about our hotel block.
