Illinois State Bar Association Votes to Oppose Death Penalty

The assembly of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA) voted on Saturday to oppose the death penalty in Illinois, during the ISBA annual meeting held in St. Louis, Missouri.

International human rights law and the views of other countries were prominently discussed during the debate, including calls for the United States to join the community of civilized nations opposed to the death penalty.
