Appellate Criminal Defense Clinic

About the Clinic

Students in the Appellate Criminal Defense Clinic handle a criminal appeal on behalf of an indigent client convicted of a felony in New York City. Students take on the professional responsibilities of appellate defense work, from reviewing the full appellate record, to researching and selecting the most salient appealable issues, to drafting the appellate brief, to orally arguing the case. Throughout the process, students collaborate with their supervisors and their clients to ensure high-quality, ethical representation.
