The Georgia Resource Center
Promoting a Fair and Reliable Criminal Justice System in Georgia

Welcome to the Georgia Resource Center

The Georgia Appellate Practice & Educational Resource Center (“Georgia Resource Center”) is a small 501(c)(3) non-profit law office established in 1988 to provide free, high quality representation to indigent death-sentenced Georgia prisoners in state and federal habeas corpus proceedings challenging their capital convictions and death sentences.

The Georgia Resource Center is responsible for ensuring that all of Georgia's death sentenced prisoners have meaningful and vigorous representation at this critical stage of death penalty case review. Without the efforts of the Resource Center, many condemned prisoners would have no representation at all in Georgia post-conviction proceedings, because Georgia is the only state which does not provide for counsel as a matter of right in post-conviction (habeas corpus) proceedings.
