Temple law students recognize Death Penalty Week

Written by , Posted in Around Campus, Living

Temple University Law and Pre-law students are coming together this week to celebrate the National Lawyers Guild’s Death Penalty Week. On Feb. 25 from 12-1 p.m. in Klein Hall room A2K, students can gather to hear from practitioners and advocates who have worked with defendants facing capital charges or who are on death row. Though the NLG’s official week is March 3-7, during Temple University’s scheduled Spring Recess, the students decided to host events and planning actions to raise awareness of unjust capital punishment system in the U.S. this week, Feb. 24-28.
