Death Penalty Representation Project

Click image for ABA document (pdf)

The American Bar Association created the Death Penalty Representation Project in 1986. The Project�s goals are to better inform the bar and the public about the lack of representation available to death row inmates, to address this urgent need by recruiting competent, volunteer attorneys and to offer counsel training and assistance. The Project also works for systemic changes that would assure those facing death are represented at all stages of the proceedings � from trial through clemency � by qualified, adequately compensated counsel.
