This externship involves students in numerous courtroom appearances on behalf of the prosecution in all phases of the misdemeanor case.
Students prosecute misdemeanor cases and attend skills exercise classes. Each student, under the direct supervision of a practicing city attorney, observes and conducts the charging of cases, arraignments, pretrial conferences, court trials and, where possible, a jury trial. Classroom discussions consider both the prosecution and defense roles and focus on special areas of importance to the misdemeanor practitioner, with an emphasis on the DWI and Implied Consent Laws.
