Mediating Death-Row Cases

There’s a new television show called In Justice which premiered on New Year’s Day. The theme involves the National Justice Project, a high-profile, non-profit organization made up of young lawyers and investigators who fight to overturn wrongful convictions, liberate the falsely accused, and discover the identity of those really to blame. How about something similar – mediating death-row cases? According to this article [scroll down the list to “Hard Bargaining”] in the Arab News that’s exactly what the mediator does – he tries, through mediation, to save death-row inmates from, well, death. It’s very interesting reading!
