Representing a client in a post-conviction case? This manual will guide you through the many complexities of Illinois post-conviction law. Remember, your client already lost, twice --once at trial and again on appeal. He or she needs a new case, which means going outside the record, investigating the facts, mastering the law, and presenting a compelling petition. Andrea D. Lyon, director of the DePaul College of Law's Center for Justice in Capital Cases, and her team of coauthors help you do just that.
