Welcome to the Capital Assistance Project

About Us

The Capital Assistance Project allows YLS students to provide substantive legal research and writing support for death penalty practitioners around the country. Students gain experience in capital defense and advocacy work while contributing to the anti-death penalty movement.  Last year, CAP members worked with the ACLU Capital Punishment Project, the Office of Capital and Forensic Writs, the Texas Defender Service, and the Center for Death Penalty Litigation, among others.
