Course Details

Clinic:Juvenile Justice: Post-Sentencing Advocacy and Reform

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 a positive life path. Work will include direct representation in a variety of cases and policy projects designed to support reform of the criminal and juvenile justice systems. This year, our case load will also include civil representation and public education regarding barriers to school, housing and employment for young people with prior system involvement. Students can expect to develop many lawyering skills in this course including interviewing, counseling, investigation, legal research, negotiation, written and oral advocacy, and client relations. Students will also have opportunities to represent clients in both trial and appellate courts, as well as administrative hearings, and to participate in reform efforts at the local, state and national levels.
