Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth

Laura Nirider - Co-Director, Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth & Clinical Assistant Professor of Law, Northwestern Pritzger School of Law

Laura Nirider represents Brendan Dassey of "Making a Murderer". If that name sounds familiar, his confession and trial was featured in the hit Netflix documentary series, "Making a Murderer." Ms. Nirider will present on false juvenile confessions - a topic of critical focus in the US - and how even when evidence proves them false, they lead to convictions 80 percent of the time.
