COVID-19: Community Updates and Resources
Over the course of a semester, in this graded experience, students will be given the challenging opportunity to prosecute domestic violence and sexual assault crimes while acquiring basic lawyering and courtroom skills. Students will learn to interview victims and witnesses, analyze appropriate charging of crimes, engage in fact investigation and fact-gathering and, when appropriate, to conduct oral argument, hearings and/or trials. This course facilitates the development of students professional identify as well as their multicultural awareness and trauma-informed lawyering skills.
Under the joint supervision of Professor Lynch and a specialized prosecutor, students will be assigned to work in specialized domestic violence courts in the Capital Region and begin practicing the skills learned in class.
