Marshall Dayan has been actively involved in the anti-death penalty movement since 1981. His first client after obtaining a law license in the District of Columbia was a Virginia death row inmate, and he has represented indigent persons accused or convicted of capital offenses at all stages of litigation and advocacy, from trial through the clemency process. He was staff attorney with the North Carolina Resource Center for seven years, an assistant appellate defender for the State of North Carolina for three years, and was in private practice from January, 1988 through July, 2001. In August, 2001, Dayan became an Assistant Professor of Law at North Carolina Central University School of Law. In June, 2006, Dayan became State Strategies Coordinator of the national ACLU's Capital Punishment Project, which relocated from Washington, D.C. to Durham, N.C. After almost a year with the ACLU-CPP, Dayan joined the Capital Habeas Unit of the Federal Defender's Office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Dayan has published law review articles on the death penalty in various journals, and has also written several pieces on capital litigation for The Champion, the magazine of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He has also served as Chair of the Board of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, and served as Vice-Chair on the Commission on Social Action for Reform Judaism.
