Washburn University School of Law, Criminal Appellate Advocacy Clinic
Washburn Law Clinic is a subdivision of the Washburn University Law School that serves indigent clients. Students in the law program gain real world experience by acting as legal representation for clients who cannot afford private attorneys. These student attorneys take the lead in their cases, conducting research and drafting court documents; however, all students act under the supervision of professors in the Washburn University Law School. As the name suggests, students are tasked with assisting both adult and juvenile clients with legal issues. Additionally, students study legislation and legal theory around public education, generational poverty and historical injustices in the application of law. All those who serve in the Washburn Law Clinic are deeply committed to helping to make the justice system more equitable and accessible for all individuals regardless of demographics or financial status. For more information or to request legal assistance, individuals should contact the organization directly.
