Capital Punishment Center

The Capital Punishment Center brings together scholars, students and practitioners interested in the death penalty and its administration. The law school has long been committed to educating students about capital punishment. The Capital Punishment Clinic has been offered every semester since the fall of 1987, and the center was created in 2006 to expand the law school’s academic focus on the issue. The center supports academic and clinical course offerings, and involves faculty and students in conferences, research projects, academic programs, lectures and the representation of men and women facing the death penalty in Texas.
