Prison Disciplinary Clinic

Representing clients at prison disciplinary hearings will give students a window into the hidden world of prisons. Massachusetts is one of the only states that allow students to represent clients at these hearings. All students will meet and interview clients in maximum security prisons, conduct discovery and investigation, file motions, cross-examine witnesses, make closing arguments and file appeals when necessary. Because the hearings are relatively short, students will be able to have multiple hearings each term.
