Neel Lalchandani appointed as adjunct faculty member at Georgetown University Law Center

Neel LalchandaniNeel Lalchandani, attorney at Brown, Goldstein & Levy, has been appointed as an adjunct faculty member at the Georgetown University Law Center. He is currently teaching a semester-long seminar on wrongful convictions alongside Andrew George, partner at Baker Botts LLP. Their course surveys the problem of wrongful convictions in the United States by exploring their primary causes, discussing the legal landscape of innocence litigation and considering the moral, ethical and philosophical implications of wrongful convictions for our justice system.

Neel’s faculty role at the Georgetown University Law Center complements his work with Brown, Goldstein & Levy, where he has helped secure several of the largest payments in Maryland history for victims of police misconduct. Among these payments are over $10 million in state compensation on behalf of innocent men imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. Currently, Neel is part of the legal team representing the Harlem Park Three, a group of Baltimore men wrongfully convicted at age 16 for the 1983 murder of 14-year-old DeWitt Duckett at Harlem Park Junior High. The three men were exonerated after each spending 36 years in prison, collectively serving more years than in any other wrongful-conviction case in the history of the United States.
