Description

The Georgia Appellate Practice & Educational Resource Center (“Georgia Resource Center”) is a non-profit law office that provides free, high-quality representation to poor people on Georgia’s death row, in state and federal habeas corpus proceedings challenging their capital convictions and death sentences, and in clemency proceedings before the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles. The Center advocates on behalf of every person on death row, following direct appeal through final resolution of their case. The Center’s work often results in the reversal of a client’s conviction or death sentence, but even when it does not, the Center fights tirelessly until the last minute to protect its clients’ rights. The Center’s work has exposed major errors in death penalty trials, including deficient legal representation, prosecutorial misconduct, racial discrimination, and wrongful death sentencing of people with intellectual disability and severe mental illness.
