Every fall, the Project celebrates volunteer lawyers at its Volunteer Recognition & Awards Dinner. Pro bono firms are nominated by their colleagues for exceptional service to death row prisoners and honored with the Exceptional Service Award.

The Project is excited to announce the recipients of our 2018 Exceptional Service Awards:

  • Crowell & Moring LLP
  • Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP

The Project also recognizes the extraordinary efforts of individual lawyers with the John Paul Stevens Guiding Hand of Counsel Award, which was first presented to Justice Stevens in 2011. The 2018 John Paul Stevens Guiding Hand of Counsel Award will be presented to volunteer attorney Gwendolyn C. Payton of Kilpatrick Townsend.

Congratulations to our award winners, and thank you to all of this year's incredible nominees for their commitment to providing outstanding representation to indigent death row prisoners.
