The Habeas Corpus Resource Center (HCRC), located in San Francisco, represents indigent men and women under sentence of death in
California. The HCRC's mission is to provide timely, high-quality legal
representation for indigent petitioners in death penalty habeas corpus
proceedings before the Supreme Court of California and the federal courts.
The HCRC also recruits and trains attorneys to expand the pool of private
counsel qualified to accept appointments in death penalty habeas corpus
proceedings and serves as a resource to appointed counsel, thereby reducing
the number of unrepresented indigents on California's death row. Please
refer to Court Appointments in California State Capital Habeas Corpus Proceedings for complete information.
