Student Center, Pacific Ballroom B

Jon Eldan graduated from the Berkeley School of Law in 2002, after which he moved to San Francisco to work in commercial litigation. His undergraduate years were followed by a five-year stint baking bread and writing travel guidebooks in Italy and across Europe until he enrolled in law school out of a curiosity to learn “how we determine what’s fair.” Now, Eldan has given up a salary, lives off savings, and has established After Innocence to return some of that fairness to those who have lost so much of it.

After Innocence helps more than 400 exonerees in 41 states, by providing one-on-one assistance with healthcare, public benefits and legal services, and working for long-term change by promoting better compensation laws.
