Criminal Prosecution Clinic

Under the supervision of Boone County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney and Professor of Law Kandice K. Johnson, students in the Criminal Prosecution Clinic learn how to present cases, conduct direct and cross examinations, and evaluate evidence as they handle cases for the State of Missouri. Cases include a broad range of misdemeanors and felonies, making the clinic one of only a handful at American law schools that allows students to prosecute felony cases. While providing academic lessons about criminal prosecution, the clinic also focuses on the various issues that arise with each unique case.
