On November 10, 2015, two groups of students presented at our All-Clinic Rounds Session. Prof. Carlene McNulty's students from the Consumer Financial Transactions Clinic, Francswai Davis and Rebecca Plett, presented on a case involving a sheriff levy of a client's bank account to collect on a judgment, with no notice to the client. Prof. David Neal's students from the Community Development Law Clinic, Madison Waller and Jessica Watts, presented on the creation of a tenant organization separate from but connected to a local social justice organization.
The students who presented had circulated memoranda prior to the event that summarized the facts and the legal issues implicated; at the session itself they presented for 20 minutes each, and the remaining time was devoted to questions from and discussion with the group.
All 70+ clinic students and this year's 10 faculty supervisors were invited. The session provided an opportunity for a robust discussion of the complex legal and ethical issues raised by clinical work and for students to hear about the cases handled in other clinics.
