PBI’s 2019 Annual Conference: New Frontiers in Death Penalty Cases

We are at a unique moment in the history of the death penalty in the United States where shifting attitudes, scientific advances, and legal developments have created new pathways to relief for some of the 2,500 people on death row. This session will cover emerging legal issues, new tools and partnerships, societal and scientific developments, the status of pro bono opportunities, and how to get involved. Please join Project Director Emily Olson-Gault at the Gaylord National Resort, D.C.’s National Harbor, on March 28, 2019. Panel speakers include DPIC's Robert Dunham, recently exonerated Pennsylvania death-row prisoner Jimmy Dennis, and his pro bono counsel at Arnold & Porter, Rebecca Gordon. Time tentatively set for 11am-noon.
