Chris Fabricant is the Joseph Flom Special Counsel and Director of Strategic Ligation at the Innocence Project. The Strategic Litigation Unit aims to use the courts strategically to address the leading causes of wrongful convictions, including eyewitness misidentification and the misapplication of forensic sciences. Before joining the Innocence Project, he was a clinical law professor and director of the Criminal Justice Clinic at Pace University School of Law, where he developed one of the nation's first "combined advocacy" criminal defense clinics, incorporating individual direct representation with impact litigation, legislative advocacy, and empirical research to address the harms associated with "broken windows" policing.
