Paralegal Studies Director, Alumni, Participate in Fund Raiser for Innocence Fund
The Paralegals Section of the Connecticut Bar Association co-hosted a reception with the Connecticut Bar Foundation this past fall to benefit the Connecticut Innocence Fund. The event featured a special presentation from guest speakers Attorney Karen Goodrow, director of the Connecticut Innocence Project, and Kenneth Ireland, a recent honoree.
The Innocence Fund is the only fund of its kind in the nation. It was created to assist those individuals who have been exonerated after being wrongfully convicted. The Fund provides loans, which will be repaid when recipients receive their state-funded damages compensation for their wrongful imprisonment.
The Paralegals Section is headed by co-chairs Attorney Regina C. Graziani, program director of the Paralegal Studies Program, and Janice Favreau, RP, an alumna of the Paralegal Studies Program and member of the program’s Advisory Board. Paralegal Brandon Angell, also a graduate of the Paralegal Studies Program, serves as vice chair of the section.
In the two years that the Paralegals Section and the Connecticut Bar Foundation have hosted this event, they have raised approximately $10,000 for the Fund.
