Program Director / Policy Coordinator and System Liaison, Ohio Innocence Project

Program Director / Policy Coordinator and System Liaison, Ohio Innocence Project

The Rosenthal Institute for Justice is looking for a Program Director/Policy Coordinator and System Liaison (PCSL) to interface with those working in all facets of the criminal justice system in Ohio–prosecutors, police officers, judges, criminal defense attorneys and legislators–to help them understand the causes of wrongful conviction and the need for system-wide reforms to reduce wrongful convictions and make the criminal justice system more accurate and fair.   This position requires a self-starter who can work with existing policy coordinators in the Innocence Network to build a curriculum and modules for education, and who can network statewide to build relationships with all listed stakeholders.  With respect to prosecutors, police, judges and criminal defense attorneys, the PCSL will work to build relationships that will lead to the opportunities to present CLE and OPATA training courses statewide.  The PCSL will also develop relationships and educate on policy matters to increase voluntary adoption of “best practices” among these stakeholders.  With respect to legislators, the PCSL will develop relationships and educate regarding the need for legislative reforms to make the criminal justice system more accurate and fair.
