Criminal Appeals Program
When the Criminal Appeals Program (CAP) was established by the NCJRL at The University of Mississippi School of Law in 2002, one of the primary goals established by the Center for the CAP was to publish a symposium edition of the Mississippi Law Journal to demonstrate to other law schools across the country the all-around educational value of offering a criminal appeals clinic within their general curriculum. The symposium issue was published in a Spring 2006 special edition of the Journal (75 Miss. L.J. 645-915) and concentrates on the “nuts and bolts” of creating and maintaining an appellate clinic at other law schools, strives to provide insights from the bench to appraise the advantages of this highly specialized training to law students, and outlines specific programs, techniques, and examples that have been successfully employed in other law school’s appellate clinics throughout the country.
