NYSACDL Trial Penalty Project Update!

Criminal Defense Attorney Survey Now Available!


We are pleased to announce that the criminal defense attorney survey for this project is now available! We need your help in eliminating the trial penalty in New York by participating. Here is link to the survey.


We urge you to think of your experiences, consider your clients’ decisions and take 15-25 minutes to take the survey and assist this effort.


Defense lawyers are uniquely situated to fully identify the reasons why people surrender their fundamental constitutional right to a trial with startling regularity, and why they also waive other valuable rights. The more broadly we can collect data and the stories that prove the impact of the trial penalty the greater our impact will be. Thank you!
