The Criminal Justice Clinic provides high-quality representation to mostly indigenous defendants in complex cases that other organizations cannot commit to for various reasons. Students are encouraged to think critically about the operation of the criminal justice system and to reflect on opportunities for reform. The clinic works to fulfill the right to counsel and protect due process.
Students in the program assist the clinic’s full-time attorney in preparing cases for trial and/or for plea negotiations. They also study and assess substantive criminal law and criminal procedure, with a view to proposing and facilitating reform.
