601:748. INTERVIEWING AND COUNSELING: COMMUNITY REENTRY PRACTICUM (3) S

    
McLaughlin

This course focuses on helping young adults who have been involved with juvenile and criminal courts. The course will focus primarily on expungement of juvenile and criminal records.  Students will interview clients, determine their eligibility for expungement, and then draft expungement petitions for eligible clients. Students will also attend a weekly seminar where they will learn interviewing, counseling, and drafting skills along with substantive law. Students will also discuss and critically analyze the public policy implications of their work within the criminal justice system.  Second- and third-year students are eligible to enroll. Participation in this class does not preclude a student from enrolling in a clinical program in a later semester.
