Help Needed: Clemency Project 2014

Clemency Project 2014 needs your help.

The ABA Criminal Justice Section has partnered with the ACLU, Families Against Mandatory Minimums, the Federal Defenders, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to create Clemency Project 2014, an initiative to provide pro bono representation to incarcerated people in the Federal Penal System seeking sentence commutation–executive clemency–under the DOJ’s New Clemency Initiative.

You do not need to be a criminal law lawyer to help. Volunteering is easy and not terribly time consuming. Clemency Project 2014 has prepared a 2-hour training and streamlined process that identifies and acquires most of the documents that you will need to review a case. In total, it takes on average between 25-30 attorney-hours from receiving a case to preparing that case for clemency petition.

If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the Clemency Project 2014 website: You may also contact Jonathan Gitlen at [email protected], an attorney leading the Criminal Justice Section’s Clemency Representation Project, for any questions you might have.
