On March 4, 2015, UNC Clinical Programs held its fourth All-Clinic Rounds session, during which students and faculty from all of our clinics gathered to discuss their current cases.
The program was moderated by Professor Barbara Fedders of the Youth Justice Clinic, and the following cases were presented:
Brent Ducharme and Whitley Carpenter of the Civil Legal Assistance Clinic discussed a housing conditions case in which their clients faced substandard conditions in their Chapel Hill apartment, including a serious mold infestation, an insect infestation, a lack of weather-tight doors and windows, and walls covered with peeling and flaking paint.
Robert El-Jaouhari of the Consumer Financial Transactions Clinic discussed a case in which the client had been unable to maintain monthly mortgage payments on her home, and after a default and a failed loan modification, the bank initiated a power-of-sale foreclosure of the underlying note.
Kathleen Lockwood, Caitlin McCartney, and Erin Gibbs of the Immigration Clinic presented the case of two unaccompanied minors, ages 13 and 16, from El Salvador who were currently in removal proceedings and being considered for asylum or Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.
Alex Marshall of the Youth Justice Clinic discussed the case of a 15 year old client who was charged with several felonies related to a stolen motor vehicle.
The discussion was lively and productive, and the students appreciated hearing about the work of their colleagues in other clinics.
