A Criminal Enterprise

About

Our work is primarily focused on the representation of capital defendants in Louisiana.  We started this blog to think about criminal law issues beyond the scope of our respective caseloads and projects.  We hope that by taking the pulse of criminal law news and scholarship (including relevant developments in other fields), we can create a bridge between people in scholarship, policy, and law practice.  The posts inevitably reflect our own views, which are largely informed by our experiences advocating for indigent capital defendants in the South.

Rob works as counsel for the Harvard Law School’s Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice.  He is also a (remote) staff attorney at the Capital Appeals Project in New Orleans.  He graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in political science, and received his JD from Harvard Law School.

Bidish is a staff attorney at the The Justice Center’s Capital Appeals Project in New Orleans.  He graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in political science and philosophy, and received his JD from Yale Law School.

Sophie is the Research Co-ordinator for the Capital Appeals Project in New Orleans. She graduated from the University of New South Wales, Australia with honors in social science and criminology.

    Great blog. Keep up the good work. I am currently working on the Peeler appeal that you help me with at the trial.
