Criminal Law Clinic

The Criminal Clinic represents indigent defendants who have been charged with various misdemeanors and some relative felonies in the Nineteenth Judicial Courts. The clinic is appointed by the court in the same manner as the Office of the Public Defender. The students are exposed to the criminal process in its entirety. They will visit prisons, negotiate with the District Attorneys, develop trial theories, and practice and handle all criminal matters from the arraignment throughout the entire trial process.
