Seminar

Both Clinics have a seminar meeting once a week. The Criminal Defense Clinic I seminar addresses various issues related to criminal defense, including search and seizure, defenses to crime, the practical workings of the courts, the ethics of criminal defense, DUI law, and racism in the criminal justice system. The Criminal Defense Clinic II seminar focuses more on trial practice skills, though it will also address various issues that are topical and current in the criminal justice arena. Both seminars rely heavily on actual cases handled in the office as the basis for discussion.
