Clinic: Second Chances: Advocacy for Children in Juvenile & Criminal Court

"This clinic section will focus on supporting youth and young adults who have been in conflict with the law and are now struggling to return to their communities and to a positive life path. Work will include direct representation in a variety of pre- and post-trial matters as well as policy projects designed to support reform of the criminal and juvenile justice systems. Students can expect to develop many lawyering skills in this course including those relating to interviewing, counseling, investigation, legal and social science research and analysis, persuasive communication, collaboration, negotiation, engagement and presentation of expert witnesses, and written and oral advocacy. Students will also have opportunities to represent clients in both juvenile and criminal court, and to participate in reform efforts at the local, state and national levels.
