Law Reform Advocacy Clinic

Law Reform Advocacy Clinic

Professor Stefan H. Krieger, Attorney-in-Charge
Maximum Enrollment: 6 Students

In the fall 2015 semester, students in the Law Reform Advocacy Clinic are preparing for and conducting a civil rights jury trial against the NYPD in Manhattan federal court.

Under the SDNY Student Practice Rule, students are able to represent our client in all phases of the litigation.

In this case, students are responsible for handling all aspects of the litigation:

  • arguing motions in court,
  • appearing at pretrial conferences,
  • examining witnesses, and
  • making trial arguments.

Because this case is very demanding, the Clinic requires a large time commitment.

Prerequisites:

  1. Evidence and
  2. Trial Techniques or active Trial Team participation.
