Independent Resource Centers

  • Mexican Capital Legal Assistance Program (MCLAP)

    The Mexican Capital Legal Assistance Program is funded entirely by the Government of Mexico to attorneys represent the Government of Mexico in pre-trial, appellate, and post-conviction proceedings, and provide litigation support to defense counsel. MCLAP attorneys routinely refer defense counsel to competent experts and mitigation specialists, advise defense counsel regarding mitigation themes and investigations in Mexico, and provide sample briefs on a variety of legal issues. Depending on the case circumstances, MCLAP may also file amicus briefs on issues of international law, or provide other resources necessary to ensure Mexican nationals receive vigorous and effective representation.

    Counsel representing Mexican nationals are encouraged to contact the director of MCLAP for more information:
