The purpose of the Capital Case Litigation Initiative (CCLI) is to improve the quality and effectiveness of representation in death penalty cases through training for both the prosecutors who represent the public and the defense attorneys who represent indigent defendants in state capital cases. Because capital case litigation is governed by unique evidentiary rules and processes, specified training is essential to improve the quality of legal representation and to ensure reliable jury verdicts in state capital cases.
