“Ensuring the doors of federal court aren’t shut to prisoners with potentially viable claims is vital for our civil justice system. It is astonishing how often prisoners’ rights are abused behind the prison bars—even when it comes to basic human rights such as adequate food. And that is why it is so important to review on appeal cases where district courts summarily turn prisoners away simply because they are too poor to afford a filing fee,” said Matteo Godi '18. “As a law student, briefing and arguing a case in front of a federal court of appeals is an unparalleled learning opportunity and a truly humbling experience.”

A powerful moment unfolded at commencement Monday as the audience recognized Vernon Horn, who was recently exonerated and released from prison after serving 17 years for a crime he did not commit. His freedom came after years of hard work from public defender David Keenan ’13 and three YLS students, who helped uncover exculpatory evidence to overturn his conviction.

One of the first thing’s Horn said after being released was that he wanted to see the students who helped him graduate.

“Mr. Horn’s story is a story about the power of law, and that is a power that each and every one of you now possesses,” said Gerken, as the the crowd rose to their feet in applause. https://ylaw.us/2s3kBYd
