The Death Penalty Clinic Seminar is mandatory for all students enrolled in the Death Penalty Clinic. The seminar provides the theoretical foundation and skills training for the Death Penalty Clinic. Because the seminar will include discussions of our cases, it is only open to students who are concurrently enrolled in the Clinic. Enrollment in the Clinic is limited to J.D. students and is by permission of the faculty. Professor Alper will be on teaching leave during the fall semester, and Professor Semel will be on teaching leave during the spring semester. Professors Semel (fall semester) and Professor Alper (spring semester) and Clinic Fellow Bidish Sarma will teach the Seminar with an additional instructor, Christina Spaulding, who is an experienced capital defense attorney.
