In observance of the 18th annual World Day Against The Death Penalty, please join The Advocates for Human Rights for an informative panel discussion on Access to Counsel in US Death Penalty Cases. Our panelists have decades of experience in litigating death penalty matters involving the deprivation of effective counsel in both state and federal courts, including in the US Supreme Court, and will discuss recent developments, continuing obstacles, and what is on the horizon in upcoming cases. The panel includes:

  • Prof. LaJuana Davis, a longtime death penalty litigator at the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama, and current professor of law at the Cumberland School of Law in Birmingham, Alabama. Prof. Davis was recently appointed to head Cumberland’s newly established Innocence Clinic.
  • Prof. Bernard Harcourt, professor of law at Columbia University School of Law, whose career-long commitment to representing prisoners in death penalty cases was recently honored with the New York City Bar Association’s Norman J. Redlich Capital Defense Distinguished Service Award.
  • Patrick Mulvaney, managing attorney for capital litigation at the Southern Center for Human Rights in Atlanta, Georgia. Mr. Mulvaney began his career at SCHR as a Reprieve Fellow, and has devoted his career to death penalty litigation at both the trial and appellate levels. He is the author of numerous articles and essays on criminal justice and the death penalty.
