The UW Law School’s LAIP (Law School’s Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons) program is one of the few programs in the nation that allows advocates for compassionate release of incarcerated people with terminal illness to prevent them from dying alone behind bars. This program re-examines an incarcerated person’s case once they are diagnosed with a terminal illness to ensure that the punishment still fits the crime. This initiative hits home for our firm as Attorney Payal Khandhar was a proud participant of the program during law school.
