†Prosecution Externship and Instruction (21088). 2 or 3 units, credit/fail. Students in this clinical externship will assist state or federal prosecutors with their responsibilities, both before and at trial. Placements are available in New Haven and surrounding cities and in a variety of fields, including misdemeanors, felonies, or specialized areas such as career criminal, traffic, or appellate work. Weekly sessions will range from discussions of assigned readings to field trips to prisons, police laboratories, etc. Students will be required to keep journals and time records. Placements at the U.S. Attorney’s Office must be arranged at least four months in advance, to allow time for security clearance procedures. Applications and interviews for the State’s Attorney placements will take place during the first week of the term. Although enrollment is limited and permission of the instructor is required, timing and the involvement of outside agencies remove this clinic from the usual sign-up process for limited enrollment courses. K. Stith and L. Brennan.
