Emory Law School Adds Two New Clinics

EmoryThe law school’s Indigent Criminal Defense and Juvenile Justice Clinics will begin in the fall semester 2006. The Criminal Defense Clinic is a joint project with the Office of the DeKalb County Public Defender. Students in the Criminal Defense Clinic will work directly with clients and will participate in courses taught by O’Connor. They will have the opportunity to represent criminal defendants, primarily in misdemeanor cases, in DeKalb County.

The Juvenile Justice Clinic is a unit of the Law School's Barton Child Law and Policy Clinic. Waldman will develop the Juvenile Justice course, teach fundamentals of juvenile law and litigation, interview and represent children. Also, she will supervise certified legal interns who represent children in delinquency and other proceedings – providing advocacy in the areas of school discipline, special education, mental health, and public benefits. More details on the clinics here. [Mark Godsey]
