Field of Practice: Misdemeanor Clinic

The Criminal Misdemeanor Clinic is a one-semester clinic offered in the Fall which focuses heavily on litigation in routine criminal legal matters. Students will handle a variety of misdemeanor cases in District, Municipal, and Traffic courts, along with occasional lower-grade felony cases. Students can expect to spend a significant amount of time in court from the beginning of the semester. Class time will focus on the practical aspects of criminal procedure as well as professional guidance in this area of law.
