Project for Informed Reform Clinic

There is currently a groundswell for criminal justice reform. At the same time, much is being written about the lack of hard facts and reliable data to inform these changes. This clinic aims to step into that void and take on collaborative projects to produce those hard facts and reliable data for all types of organizations that need it.

Clinic students will produce white papers, research papers and/or testimony in support of legislation related to criminal justice reform. Students should expect to devote a minimum of 12-15 hours to clinic work each week.

Some students may have to travel as far as Richmond, Virginia, to review files on a weekday, so a car would be useful, although not essential. Additionally, having a full day with no classes would also be useful, but not essential.
