Professor Stefan H. Krieger, Attorney-in-ChargeMaximum Enrollment: 8 Students
Want to participate in a major jury trial in federal court? Then, this is the clinic for you.
On January 13, 2014, our Fair Housing Act trial will begin in Brooklyn and will last five to six weeks with examinations of at least 40 witnesses.
Students will work on preparation of all aspects of the case: jury selection, opening statements, direct examinations, cross examinations, jury charge conferences and closing argument.
With Clinic supervisors and attorneys from our co-counsel, Nixon Peabody, LLC, students will get hands-on experience on a daily basis both in and out of court.
This Clinic requires an intense commitment during the period of the trial and frequent travel to Brooklyn.
