Amicus Brief Advocacy

The Amicus Committee, led by Justin Danilewitz and Donna Walsh, identifies potential cases to advance fairness of the criminal defense system.  It encourages members to submit requests for amicus briefs on a timely basis.  Most of their efforts are directed toward filings in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.  If you are interested in having the Amicus Committee consider your request to file an amicus brief, then please complete this application and attach the documents outlined on the form to pacdl@pacdl.org.
