Resolution of the Board of Directors of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers Earmarking Jeralyn Merritt's Contribution for Death Penalty CLE Scholarships
July 24, 1999
1) Jeralyn Merritt donated $6,250 to NACDL on behalf of Dick Burr and Rob Nye specifically earmarked to be used in support the work of NACDL's Death Penalty Committee; and
2) Many lawyers doing death penalty work around the country do not have the financial ability to attend death penalty CLEs; so
BE IT RESOLVED THAT
3) The $6,250 be deposited in the NACDL Foundation bank account to be used exclusively to award need-based scholarships for NACDL Members to attend approved death penalty CLEs.
