RESOURCES: New Website and Database Launched
The Death Penalty Project launched a new Web site on December 10 that includes a legal resource database with a comprehensive list of international legal authorities and case law, some dating back to the 19th century, and detailed head notes for those seeking jurisprudence on criminal, constitutional, and international points of law. Users can search for case references by subject matter and a sophisticated case index.
The site is located at www.deathpenaltyproject.org. The Death Penalty Project is an international human rights organization that provides free legal representation to the many individuals facing the death penalty in the Caribbean and Africa, and works to ensure compliance with regional and international human rights standards.
