International Conference on 
Prevention of Wrongful Convictions

About this conference:

In all countries and at all times, wrongful convictions have never been avoided in the criminal judicial field. Generally speaking, wrongful convictions usually hurt innocent people and violate human rights. As the idea of human rights increasingly deepens in China, it is of great significance both in reality and in theory to hold an international conference on wrongful convictions.

In the conference, more than 100 criminal law scholars, judicial personnel, local lawyers and wrongful convicted victims will be invited to deeply discuss typical wrongful convictions in the judicial practice of countries in the world.
