The Death Penalty Clinic Seminar I is limited to J.D. students who are accepted for enrollment in the Death Penalty Clinic for Academic year 2020-21. The clinic and the seminar are year-long commitments. The seminar addresses the substantive and procedural law issues relevant to clinic's death penalty cases and offers students an opportunity to workshop their clinic projects. Professor Elisabeth Semel, Director of the Death Penalty Clinic, and Professor Ty Alper, the clinic's Associate Director, co-teach the seminar. Their faculty bios are available on the law school's faculty profiles page as well as on the Death Penalty Clinic's webpage.
