Elinor Leary Leads Workshop for USF School of Law’s Criminal and Juvenile Justice Law Clinic

On November 8, Elinor Leary will lead a seminar for the USF School of Law’s Criminal and Juvenile Justice Clinic. The Clinic provides a select group of advanced law students the opportunity to represent clients in ongoing adult and juvenile criminal matters.

Leary will lecture and demonstrate winning jury selection techniques, advise students on how to select jurors for each of their unique current cases, and help them develop a better courtroom presence.

Students selected for participation in the CJJC represent indigent defendants in all phases of criminal proceedings, from arraignment through trial and appeal in the San Francisco Superior Courts. They attend a two hour weekly trial skills seminar. They also work closely with practicing attorneys and judges at the Hall of Justice.
