This month's website is:

Death Penalty Worldwide
https://uhlaw.lib.hawaii.edu/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=4011985

Death Penalty Worldwide aims to bridge critical gaps in research and advocacy around the death penalty. The database on this Website provides information on the laws and practices related to the application of the death penalty for every country in the world that retains capital punishment and is designed to meet the needs of judges, policymakers, scholars, lawyers, journalists, and human rights advocates for comprehensive information of the death penalty. Also, it engages in targeted advocacy focusing on protecting the rights of those who come into conflict with the law, including juveniles, women, and individuals with intellectual disabilities and mental illnesses.
Death Penalty Worldwide (DPW) was founded in April 2011 by Professor Sandra Babcock, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the International Human Rights Clinic at Cornell University Law School, in partnership with the World Coalition Against the Death Penalty..


Legal Websites of the Month Archive



As a service to OBS-SIS members, a MARC record of a legal website is distributed on the OBS-SIS discussion list each month. We encourage you to try it out and see if your library might want to include it in your online catalog.

The links below each site name will connect you to the MARC record for the resource.  From the record you can view the website itself by following the links, or view the MARC tagging format by exporting the record and selecting the appropriate MARC format.  Website suggestions and cataloging questions should be addressed to Keiko Okuhara.
