This material provides an in-depth examination of the process and procedure of mitigation since the abolition of the death penalty in Illinois. Despite the abolition of the death penalty, this presentation stresses how what we have learned from mitigation with the death penalty can be applied to mitigation without the penalty. This program goes on to defines mitigation both broadly and specifically through the use of court cases and their rulings.
