Amicus is a small charity that helps provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the United States.
They believe the death penalty is disproportionately imposed on the most vulnerable in society, violating their right to due process and equal justice before the law. Amicus aims to provide better access to justice and raise awareness of potential abuses of defendants rights.
Champions of Justice is Amicus’ annual celebration of the law firms and individual volunteers who work pro bono to ensure justice in the US death penalty system.
To date, 150 Arthur Cox lawyers have reviewed thousands of legal documents and provided approximately 4,200 pro bono hours to Amicus’ projects, which included seven casework projects and essential assistance in challenging the legality of Florida’s death penalty laws.
