About 12 Texas Law students spent the day in Washinton DC yesterday to hear their advisors, law professors Jordan Steiker and Rob Owen argue on behalf of three death-row inmates. The question isn't about the inmates' innocence, but about the constitutionality of a Texas Court of Criminal Appeals' ruling.
To add to Texas Law's success, in late March, six students in the Supreme Court Clinic and law professor Michael Sturley and UT Law School alumnus David Frederick will bring their transportation case to the high court. The clinic represents Altadis U.S.A. Inc., a Florida-based cigar company concerning a shipment of goods it never received.
