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.
