Criminal Prosecution Clinic - students with George Fisher

Criminal Prosecution Clinic

Through Stanford’s Criminal Prosecution Clinic, students shape the outcome of felony prosecutions in conjunction with the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.
Guided by Professor George Fisher, six students learn basic case preparation and courtroom skills on campus in a trial advocacy class. Then they spend Thursdays and Fridays working on their cases with guidance from Professor Fisher and prosecutors at the DA’s office. Students confront cases with strategic and logistical challenges and grapple with the complex ethical issues that define prosecutors’ fundamental charge to seek justice.
