Review for Center For Death Penalty Litigation (CDPL), Durham, NC, USA
CDPL is an amazing organization that does so much more than provide direct representation to individuals who are on death row in North Carolina. The organization helps improve the quality of criminal defense generally in North Carolina by providing consultation services and continuing education programs for attorneys who handle capital or potentially capital murder cases along with a wide variety of other criminal cases. Most recently, CDPL has engaged in an amazing effort to educate the public about the long-standing connections between American racism and the death penalty (see www.racistroots.org). Although CDPL's focus is on the death penalty, I continue to support it because its work improves criminal justice much more broadly.
