The relocation of the Arizona Justice Project to the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law was reported in the March 25 edition of the
Arizona Capitol Times
Reporter Anjanette Riley quoted Larry Hammond, a founding member and the project's first chairman, as saying the clinic has received in the past decade 2,500 applications from inmates to have their cases heard. For the past 10 years, the project has been housed at Hammond's law firm, Osborn Maledon, P.A.
"The primary reason for the founding is to provide a service for people who are in prison and who are no longer able to obtain counsel at public expense, but have claims that they are innocent of the crime they were convicted or have suffered as a result of some other very obvious injustice in the criminal arena," Hammond said.
He said the move improves the project's credibility and gives it additional resources to help people.
