Students' Experiences

Students in the Criminal Defense Clinic will handle a variety of criminal legal matters and proceedings on behalf of clients of Winnebago County, Illinois.

Criminal defendants are among those least regarded in society, and even in the legal system. Students in this clinic have the opportunity to vigorously defend the Constitutional rights of defendants, protect them from the power of the State and see that they obtain justice.

Students will represent clients with:

  • Misdemeanor offenses or major traffic offenses
  • Petitions for removal from the sex offender registry due to juvenile sex offense adjudications
  • Mental health or substance abuse issues leading to criminal behavior
