LAW 6262 - Across the Finish Line: Sentence Reductions for Federal Commutees


Credits: 2

Teaches students how to use effective post-conviction strategies, including mitigation investigation, negotiation, and motion practice, in the context of federal criminal defense. Students interview clients, family members, and brainstorm negotiation tactics. Students then assist counsel in writing judicial motions for formerly life-sentenced drug offenders who received term commutations from President Obama, but whose sentences were not completely excised. Lawyers for the Decarceration Collective have final responsibility for filing client motions in court.
