Amicus Casework Programme

The Amicus casework programme provides remote support for capital defenders in the US. Most of our current teams come from law firms or barristers’ chambers in the UK. Working with legal professionals enables us to guarantee the confidentiality of our case materials as well as maintain the highest standards of quality and consistency. We have up to 200 volunteer caseworkers working on up to eight different cases, including Supreme Court, federal and state level cases, at any given time.

How can we get involved?

Opportunities are generally advertised to affiliate firms and organisations. If you work at a firm or chambers and think your colleagues might be interested in hearing more about Amicus casework, then contact us directly or put us in touch with whomever is responsible for coordinating pro bono work. We can arrange a meeting to discuss the different ways your firm or chambers can get involved.
