Lessons from the Pretrial Justice Clinic

Thursday, August 17, 2017, 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM ET

The University of Baltimore School of Law's Pretrial Justice Clinic (PTJC) uses a clinical law school model to fight against mass incarceration and for pretrial justice. PTJC is unique in that it is the only law school clinic that focuses solely on pretrial reform and accepts both violent misdemeanors and felonies. Join the clinic's co-founders and students to explore the student-driven structure of the clinic, highlights from its first year in operation, and the challenges inherent in confronting the criminal justice system's volume problems while maintaining a client-centered practice. In addition, faculty will offer an update on impact of recent court rule changes on pretrial decision making in Maryland.
