The Capital Habeas Corpus Unit (CHU) represents both state and federally death-sentenced prisoners in post-conviction proceedings throughout Pennsylvania and, in some instances, in jurisdictions outside of Pennsylvania. Through a multi-faceted team approach, the CHU provides its clients with the highest level of legal representation with respect to their convictions and death sentences, and prides itself on treating its clients with dignity and respect. CHU personnel regularly litigate in the federal district court, courts of appeals, and the United States Supreme Court. CHU staff also provide training and consultation to members of the private bar handling capital post-conviction cases.
