The American Bar Association Guidelines for the Appointment and Performance of Defense Counsel in Death Penalty Cases were approved in February 2003. Ten years later, the Hofstra Law Review will publish an anniversary symposium issue as the ABA and Hofstra Law host a conference on how to implement the Guidelines to improve the quality of justice.
