Course Description

Civil Rights Litigation Clinic II - LAW894
3 Credits

This clinic offers hands-on experience litigating civil rights claims on behalf of individuals currently or formerly confined to psy-chiatric facilities. Under close faculty supervision, students handle precedent-setting cases relating to the confinement, care, and treat-ment of individuals deemed to be mentally ill. The clinic prepares students for all types of litigation and trains them to interview clients, investigate and develop facts, draft pleadings and dis-covery documents, and research and write briefs. The course re-quires a minimum 10 hours’ clinical work in addition to a weekly three-hour seminar. (Pre- or co-requisite: Disability Law.)
