Message from the Director

Robin M. Maher

The American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL) represents some of the best that our legal system has to offer. The College is composed of some of the most outstanding and experienced members of the trial bar who are invited to join an elite membership of just 5700 lawyers. The College is dedicated to improving the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice, and the ethics of the profession.

The Project is delighted to announce that it has now partnered with the ACTL Access to Justice Committee to place several death penalty cases with its excellent Fellows.  Co-chairs Derry Millar and Dennis Suplee have championed our work and encouraged their colleagues to assist the men and women on death row who are without counsel.  We are very honored to work with the College and look forward to the successes this new partnership will bring.  Many thanks!
