Clinic Practice: Juvenile Justice and Criminal Trials and Appeals

Students in this section of the Clinic will represent clients in juvenile, criminal, and death penalty trials and appeals. 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, and in death penalty cases, students will work together in groups. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a police accountability project which integrates legal work with community involvement. 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. Second year students earn 3.0 credits. Third year students earn 4.0 credits. Second year students earn 3.0 credits. Third year students earn 4.0 credits. Enrollment is limited to JD candidates
