Get Involved

There is no constitutional right to counsel for prisoners on death row. You have the power to ensure that every person facing a death sentence has the assistance of a skilled advocate.

Volunteer Your Time

The Project receives countless requests for assistance from death row prisoners across the country who are without counsel. We are always looking for private attorneys from the civil bar who can donate their time and skills to help ensure that every person facing a sentence of death has access to high-quality legal representation. Learn about the many types of opportunities available!

Intern with the Project

Law students and undergrads can apply for one of our semester-long internships. Depending on skill level, Interns can expect to assist with case summaries, conduct legal and policy research, publish articles in our newsletter and blog, and gain a deeper understanding of death penalty jurisprudence3. Previous experience with or knowledge of the death penalty is not required, though a strong interest in the subject is preferred.
