The 2017-18 academic year has been an exciting one in the Criminal Defense Clinic (CDC). With Professor Robin Walker Sterling on a year-long Fulbright in Ghana, and Associate Professor Lasch having been on sabbatical in the Fall 2017 term, the CDC students and clients were in the most capable hands of Assistant Professor Lindsey Webb and Clinical Fellow Rachel Moran. The CDC is eternally grateful to them, for they carried the torch without missing a step.
