DePaul Professor, Defense Attorney Writes About Death Row

18 Dec

If you’re anything like me — just one of the staffers here at Demon Tracks — you sink your teeth into any memoir or historical non-fiction book. So you may be curious to check out a new release from Andrea D. Lyon, clinical professor of law, associate dean of Clinical Programs, and director of the Center for Justice in Capital Cases at DePaul.

Here’s the skinny on the book and where you can catch the author in 2010:

Lyon is kicking off the release of  “Angel on Death Row: My Life as a Death Penalty Defense Lawyer,” with several appearances around the country. According to her website, the book is “the story of the first woman in the nation to serve as lead attorney on a death penalty case.”
