July 1978-August 1979

Supervised law student interns enrolled in the University of Connecticut Criminal Law Clinic in their representation of indigent defendants. Under the close supervision of Professor Sheldon, Attorney Richard Reeve, and I, the students planned and executed investigations, prepared pleadings, argued motions, examined witnesses, counseled clients, negotiated with state's attorneys, prosecuted appeals, and performed most other tasks associated with criminal defense. I took part in and occasionally organized classroom demonstrations, role-playing, seminars on procedure, and videotaped simulations. I critiqued, counseled, and cheered student attorneys, as needed.
