The First District Appellate Project (FDAP) is a non-profit law office, created in 1985 under the auspices of the Bar Association of San Francisco in conjunction with the First Appellate District of the California Court of Appeal and the Administrative Office of the Courts. FDAP's mission is to ensure quality representation of indigent appellants in criminal, juvenile, dependency and mental health appeals in the First District Court of Appeal.
[Link added.] The FDAP site also "assist[s] a panel of approximately 325 attorneys who are appointed to represent indigent appellants in the First District." (Oh, and they like weblogs.) Similar appellate projects in California include Appellate Defenders in San Diego and the California Appellate Project in Los Angeles.
