MacArthur Clinic students interview Death Row inmates on Conditions of Confinement

After inspecting Mississippi’s Death Row and conducting cell-side interviews of inmates as part of their litigation challenging the conditions of confinement on Death Row, MacArthur Justice Clinic students visited the gravesite of Fannie Lou Hamer, one of Mississippi’s greatest heroes of the Civil Rights Movement. The MacArthur Justice Center at the University of Mississippi School of Law pursues civil rights litigation on behalf of those Mississippians Mrs. Hamer championed – the poor, disenfranchised, and marginalized.
