LAW 7869 - Juvenile Life Without Parole Clinic

Fall or Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Permission of instructor required.

J. Blume.

Death penalty litigation: investigation and the preparation of petitions, memoranda, and briefs. Case selection and student assignments depend on both pedagogical factors and litigation needs of clinic clients. Students read the trial and lower court record and research legal issues. Some students are involved in investigation, while others primarily assist in the preparation of briefs, petitions and other case documents. All students are included in discussions regarding the necessary investigation, research, and strategy for the cases.
