Crime victims in Baltimore City are among the least likely to seek or obtain redress for their victimization, either through administrative remedies or through the court system. This clinic aims to change that outcome, as student attorneys spend the semester dissecting the ways our legal system responds to victimization through the lenses of race, gender, and poverty. In this clinic, you will represent victims of crime in a broad array of legal matters such as immigration proceedings, civil claims related to property and financial crimes, and in parole proceedings. By adopting a client-centered lawyering approach, you will help your clients find legal solutions that meet both their legal and non-legal needs as they seek to move forward after their victimization.
Being in this clinic and working with Professor Meadows has definitely exceeded my expectations. I've learned so much in this clinic and truly enjoyed my experience.
