Barton Appeal for Youth Clinic

Students in the Appeal for Youth Clinic provide holistic appellate representation of youthful offenders in the juvenile and criminal justice systems. By providing post-conviction representation to youths and increasing the number of appeals from adjudications of delinquency, we hope to decrease the number of youthful offenders who languish in Georgia's prisons.

How to Apply

Application: Applications for the fall semester are accepted the previous spring semester, with interviews and rolling admissions offered shortly after the application deadline.

Eligibility: The Barton Appeal for Youth Clinic is open to second- and third-year law students.

Prerequisites/Co-requisites: There are no prerequisites or co-requisites for the Appeal for Youth Clinic. Selection for the clinic is highly competitive, however, so relevant coursework and/or experience in juvenile and criminal law is preferred. Interviews are scheduled as applications are received and decisions are made shortly after the interviews.
