2001 Penn State political science alumnus Seth Miller graduated near the top of his law school class and could have launched his career at a prestigious law firm, but instead he decided to help those most in need of assistance the wrongly convicted. He joined the Innocence Project of Florida, Inc., where he is now executive director.

Seth's mission is to free innocent individuals in Florida prisons through DNA testing, and he has litigated dozens of cases pro bono. Through his efforts, five people who spent a combined 95 years wrongfully imprisoned have been released. The Innocence Project of Florida also helps freed individuals rejoin society, locate housing, and receive job training.

Miller will talk about his work in the courtroom and with law enforcement, prosecutors, and educational and government entities to institute criminal justice reforms to bring greater reliability to Florida's criminal justice system. Q&A period to follow.
