PCLP: Arizona Capital Representation Project
Date/Time: Wednesday, November 6, 2013  12:00:PM
Location: Room 156

This Wednesday, Nov 6th, the Program in Criminal Law and Policy is proud to host the Arizona Capital Representation Project

The Project is the only legal aid organization in Arizona assisting capital defendants at all legal stages (from pretrial through clemency), as well as providing direct, often pro bono, legal representation to Arizona death row inmates in their state and federal appeals.

Since 1989, the Project has provided assistance to inmates on Arizona’s death row and has directly represented dozens of death-sentenced prisoners. The Project provides free consulting (including client relations, issue identification, legal research, drafting pleadings, developing and distributing general legal materials, hosting moot courts in preparation for oral arguments, and referring appropriate expert assistance) to capital defendants and their lawyers.

In addition, the Project hosts free legal training seminars, which provide capital defense lawyers with the education and tools necessary for competent representation. The Project also provides community education about Arizona’s death penalty.

We will meet in Room 156. Pizza will be served at 12pm. 

Hope to see you all there!
