This free program offers 6.0 CLE credits* and is intended for law students and attorneys who are currently representing or are interested in representing death-row inmates in post-conviction proceedings. The program features nationally recognized death penalty experts. It includes a presentation on post-conviction capital work designed for beginners, a roundtable on current trends and issues designed for seasoned practitioners, a review of recent Supreme Court decisions, a presentation on mental retardation and capital punishment, and two presentations on ethics issues in post-conviction litigation.

The session will be followed by presentation of the Norman Redlich Capital Defense Distinguished Service and Pro Bono Awards. The Distinguished Service Award will be presented to James S. Liebman, a prolific litigator and scholar whose work has been instrumental in efforts to abolish the death penalty and to prevent the execution of numerous prisoners sentenced to death. The Pro Bono Award will be presented to Kaye Scholer LLP, which has skillfully advocated for death-row inmates since the early 1990s. These awards seek to honor Dean Redlich's legacy by recognizing those members of the New York bar who have emulated his life-long dedication to challenging the death penalty. The award presentation will be followed by a keynote lecture by James S. Liebman. The program will conclude with a cocktail reception.
