When & Where
DePaul University College of Law - The Center for Justice in Capital Cases
Protecting the constitutional rights of someone facing the death penalty is a complex and compelling challenge. The Center for Justice in Capital Cases creates a higher standard of practice in the capital arena through vigorous advocacy and investigation, cutting-edge work in the social sciences, and a client-centered philosophy. By striving to safeguard the rights of indigent capital defendants, the Center hopes to reform the administration of criminal justice one life at a time.
Founded in 2000, the Center for Justice in Capital Cases is a resource for capital defense attorneys nationwide. It provides training for attorneys appointed to defend individuals charged with a capital crime and serves as a training ground for students interested in working on capital cases. The Center's death penalty legal clinic gives students an opportunity to acquire outstanding real-world experience through such responsibilities as researching cases, locating and interviewing witnesses, and writing motions.
