"Emory Law School will create two new clinical programs in adult indigent criminal defense and in juvenile justice. These clinics are slated to begin in the Fall Semester 2006. The Criminal Defense Clinic will be developed in coordination with the Office of the DeKalb County Public Defender. Students will work directly with clients and will participate in courses taught by a clinical instructor who will work in the Office of the Public Defender.
The Juvenile Justice Clinic will be a unit of the Law School's Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic. In the new Juvenile Justice Clinic, students will have the opportunity to assist in the direct representation of juvenile clients and will participate in related academic courses led by the clinical instructor.
The law school has begun a search for directors for the new clinics. For more information, or to apply for a position with the criminal justice clinic, contact Professor Robert Schapiro at 404-727-1103 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For information on the juvenile justice clinic, contact Professor Frank Vandall at 404-727-6510 or fvandall(at)law.emory.edu. For naming opportunities or to donate to the clinics, contact Susan Carter at 404-727-0055 or sfcarte(at)law.emory.edu. [Mark Godsey]
