Appeals and Post-Conviction Advocacy Clinic

In this clinical course, each student prepares a criminal appellate brief on behalf of a real client incarcerated in a Michigan prison who has been convicted of a felony after a jury trial.

The students review the trial transcript and exhibits, identify appealable issues, interview and counsel their clients and present mock oral arguments to a panel of experienced criminal appellate practitioners. Ultimately, the students have their briefs submitted to the Michigan Court of Appeals.

The Appeals and Post-Conviction Advocacy Clinic course is available for four graded credits. Enrollment is limited to eight students.
