Here’s is Brandon Garrett’s take on the NRE’s value.
“The National Registry Exonerations is a model for scholarship that can change the world by collecting an sharing information. It is a resource, it has helped countless researchers, and it has helped countless lawyers. Before the Registry, it was hard for anyone to learn of cases that had been reversed on innocence grounds., outside of DNA exonerations as least. Now we have in the U.S. the most remarkable archive of information about exonerations that exists anywhere in the world.”
