Maryland Carey Service Corps - Trips

Criminal Law Trip

The criminal law trip began in the spring of 2006 in response to the need for volunteer legal services in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The trip initially focused on assisting the Office of the Public Defender; however, it has expanded to include the Louisiana Capital Assistance Center, the Capital Post Conviction Project of Louisiana, and Juvenile Regional Services. These organizations all provide much needed representation to indigent criminal defendants at various stages of the litigation process. We are excited about teaming up with these organizations again, and we are looking forward to another great trip this year.

  • Why should I participate in the criminal law trip?
    Volunteers with the criminal law trip have the opportunity to gain valuable practical experience as they assist with the representation of indigent criminal defendants. Past volunteers have conducted client interviews, prepared criminal defendants for bail hearings, and performed research on the death penalty.
