LAW 806D: Policy Practicum: Expanding Access to the Legal Bar for the Formerly Incarcerated

The Stanford Criminal Justice Center is undertaking a project to increase the participation of formerly incarcerated people in the legal profession who have an interest in pursuing legal careers but who face challenges in overcoming the moral character requirement to bar admission. The project includes surveying best practices, advocacy with the State Bar and could eventually lead to supporting California Bar applicants in moral character hearing determinations. This two-quarter lab will also host a national roundtable that brings together scholars, advocates, and Bar representatives to develop best practices, reported in a final white paper, on law school admission and Bar consideration of applicants with criminal records. We are seeking four to six law students to participate. Students may enroll in both quarters. Elements used in grading: Performance, Class participation, Written Assignments, Final Paper. NOTES: Students may not count more than a combined total of eight units of directed research projects and policy lab practica toward graduation unless the additional counted units are approved in advance by the Petitions Committee. Such approval will be granted only for good cause shown. Even in the case of a successful petition for additional units, a student cannot receive a letter grade for more than eight units of independent research (Policy Lab practicum, Directed Research, Directed Writing, Senior Thesis, and/or Research Track). Any units taken in excess of eight will be graded on a mandatory pass basis. For detailed information, see "Directed Research/Policy Labs" in the SLS Student Handbook. CONSENT APPLICATION: To apply for this course, students must complete and submit a Consent Application Form available on the SLS website (Click Courses at the bottom of the homepage and then click Consent of Instructor Forms). See Consent Application Form for instructions and submission deadline.
