886 - Criminal Appellate Advocacy Clinic (3)

This clinic is a natural next step for students who have completed the GLS series, and will complement the simulated advanced experience students may obtain in the appellate competition teams. Students represent indigent clients in criminal appeals to the Third Appellate District of the California Court of Appeals. This representation is done in cooperation with CCAP, the Central California Appellate Program, which is appointed counsel for these appeals. Working in teams of two, students review the record and prepare an appellate brief. As part of the requirements of the clinic, students give a mock oral argument for one of the appeals they are handling. Admission into the Criminal Appellate Advocacy Clinic is by an application process. Prerequisites: GLS II, Criminal Procedure, and prior or concurrent enrollment in Evidence and Civil Procedure for State Bar student certification. Enrollment limit. Prerequisites are LAW 182, LAW 165, and prior or concurrent enrollment in LAW 174 or LAW 175 or LAW 176 and LAW 105 for State Bar student certification. Limited Enrollment.
