Trial attorneys are often the lawyers who spend the most time developing the factual record, investigating, exploring mitigation strategies, and litigating legal issues in a high-stress and time-sensitive environment. Join us for a conversation with three seasoned capital trial attorneys, including the former Executive Director of New York’s Capital Defender Office.

This event is co-sponsored by The Public Defender Students of Columbia Law School, Windows on Death Row, and Social Justice Initiatives.
