Law Reform Advocacy Clinic

Professor Stefan H. Krieger, Attorney-in-Charge
Maximum Enrollment: 3 Students

The Law Reform Advocacy Clinic is now representing a Guantanamo detainee in a habeas corpus case challenging his medical treatment. Next semester, three students, authorized to practice under the Student Practice Rules of the District Court for the District of Columbia and/or the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, will be representing the client in proceedings in those courts. Work will potentially include drafting of legal memoranda and briefs, negotiations with Government attorneys, oral arguments, and an evidentiary hearing. This case requires the work of highly motivated students who are up to the challenge of tacking a high-profile case. Trial practice experience (e.g., Mock Trial, Trial Team, or Trial Techniques) is strongly recommended.
