2008 Guideline 9.1

GUIDELINE 9.1 – FUNDING AND COMPENSATION

Non-attorney members of the defense team should be fully compensated at a rate that is commensurate with the provision of high quality legal representation and reflects the specialized skills needed to assist counsel with the litigation of death penalty cases. Flat fees, caps on compensation, and lump-sum contracts are improper in death penalty cases.
