The ABA Death Penalty Representation Project works to address the crisis of counsel in the death penalty system. As one of its primary goals, the Project seeks to expand the pool of lawyers willing to serve as pro bono counsel for death row inmates in post-conviction proceedings by recruiting competent volunteer attorneys to handle capital cases and providing training and assistance to them. There are a variety of different types of matters that are available to volunteers who are interested in assisting our efforts.

Join us in Baltimore to learn more about the need for volunteer lawyers, the pro bono opportunities available from the Project, and the resources provided by the Project to volunteer attorneys and law firms. Current and past volunteer attorneys will also share their experiences working on death penalty cases, and Project staff will be available to answer questions.
