Course Details

Clinic Practice: Juvenile Justice and Criminal Trials and Appeals

Students in this section of the Clinic will represent clients in juvenile and criminal trials and appeals. Students will also work on issues involving the conditions of confinement in prisons and jails. The purpose of involving students in these cases is to develop skills in interviewing, counseling, investigation, oral advocacy, and writing and to expose students to the strengths and weaknesses of our justice system. Each student will have individual clients for whom he/she will be responsible. In the more complex criminal cases students will work together in groups. Weekly class sessions will be held during which there will be presentations on cases, skill development, and broad issues affecting the juvenile and criminal justice systems. Readings relevant to our section's work will be assigned. NOTE: There will be a mandatory clinic student orientation hosted by clinic faculty on Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 1:00 to 5:00 pm.
