Lindsay Runnels joined UMKC School of Law in August 2016 as an Associate Clinical Professor. Lindsay will be teaching Wrongful Convictions and overseeing the Innocence Project Clinic. Runnels comes to us from Morgan Pilate, a criminal and civil rights litigation firm.  She graduated with a B.A. from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and a J.D. from University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law.

With the help of our students, she and the Midwest Innocence Project will partner to litigate innocence cases within the region. Lindsay is a lifetime Royals fan and spends much of her free time reading Dr. Seuss’ books – over and over and over again.
