Gender Violence Clinic

The Gender Violence Clinic is a one semester, six credit clinic that represents criminalized survivors of violence—people who have been victims of gender-based violence (intimate partner violence, rape, sexual assault, human trafficking, and violence related to gender identity and/or sexual orientation) and whose incarceration (current or former) is related to in some way to that violence. The course pays particular attention to the experiences of people of color and low income people experiencing violence and abuse. Students primarily (but not exclusively) represent clients in parole, commutation, presidential pardon, and modification of sentence proceedings and may appear before Maryland courts and administrative bodies. Students may also engage in systemic advocacy work through legislative or community education projects.
