Law Reform Advocacy Clinic

Professor Stefan H. Krieger, Attorney-in-Charge
Maximum Enrollment: 2 Students

The Law Reform Advocacy Clinic is now representing a Guantanamo detainee in a habeas corpus case challenging his medical treatment. Next semester, two or three students, authorized to practice under the District of Columbia Student Practice Rule, will be representing the client in proceedings in that court. Work will potentially include extensive fact investigation, work with medical experts, drafting of legal memoranda, 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 tackling a high-profile case. Students will be eligible to apply for security clearances and meetings with the client at the Guantanamo Detention Camp. Trial practice experience (e.g., Mock Trial, Trial Team, or Trial Techniques) is strongly recommended.
