The Youth Justice Clinic (YJC) is either a full-year or fall-semester-only, three-credit, graded clinic in which third-year law students represent children and young adults in delinquency and district courts; middle-school and high-school students facing disciplinary proceedings in their schools; young adults seeking to expunge their records; and sixteen- and seventeen-year olds seeking legal emancipation. Students work in Durham, Orange, and Wake counties.

Criminal Lawyering Process (CLP) is a three-credit, graded, writing experience (WE) course. All Youth Justice Clinic students must take this course during the 3rd year fall semester. Using simulations, discussion, video, and lecture, students cover the practical skills as well as the substantive procedural law needed in court and administrative hearings. The course also presents for discussion and written reflection and analysis of ethical, strategic and systemic issues that arise in our cases. Each week, students will prepare a short writing assignment focusing on different components of defense practice.

Students electing the full-year option will have six credits in the fall and three credits in the spring. Students electing the fall-only option have six credits in the fall.
