Daniel Medwed

Professor Medwed teaches Criminal Law, Evidence, and Advanced Criminal Procedure: Wrongful Convictions and Post-Conviction Remedies. His research and pro bono activities revolve around the topic of wrongful convictions. His book, Prosecution Complex: America’s Race to Convict and Its Impact on the Innocent (New York University Press, 2012), explores how even well-meaning prosecutors may contribute to wrongful convictions because of cognitive biases and an overly-deferential regime of legal and ethical rules. In 2013, he received one of Northeastern’s most prestigious prizes, the Robert D. Klein University Lectureship, which is awarded annually to a member of the tenured or tenure-track faculty across the university who has obtained distinction in his or her field of study. He is a founding member of the Board of Directors of the Innocence Network, a consortium of innocence projects across the world, and is a former President of the Board of Directors of the Rocky Mountain Innocence Center in Salt Lake City.
