Elizabeth Weill-Greenberg worked as a Case Analyst for the Innocence Project, an organization that uses DNA testing to exonerate the wrongly convicted, from 2007 to 2015. As a Case Analyst she was tasked with reviewing requests for assistance from those seeking representation. For cases that she determined warranted an in-depth investigation, Weill-Greenberg reviewed trial transcripts, police reports, lab reports, and corresponded extensively with the person seeking help. She then synthesized information from these disparate sources to create a new narrative of the case that had not yet been written--about how the person may be innocent, and how it could be proven with DNA testing. Weill-Greenberg’s work has been instrumental in countless people becoming clients, and several exonerations.
Over the course of her career at the Innocence Project, Weill-Greenberg trained staff and law students on the Innocence Project's screening process; mentored new Case Analysts; and instituted new systems to make the intake processes more compassionate and responsive to those seeking help.
Prior to joining the Innocence Project she earned her Master’s degree at Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism. Weill-Greenberg then worked as a journalist for several years, covering a wide range of issues: from military recruitment of youth to AIDS funding policies to anti-gay immigration policies. She is currently the Communications Director for the Institute of Social Justice in Newark, NJ; she also blogs for the Huffington Post.
