The Clemency Project 2014 (CP14), a working group comprised of lawyers and advocates, launched after former U.S. Deputy Attorney General James Cole asked the legal profession to provide pro bono assistance to federal prisoners who would likely have received a shorter sentenced if sentenced under current sentencing law and policy. CP14 is focused on delivering the best legal assistance possible to those seeking help, and is working with leaders from bar associations around the country.
