We have expanded our partnerships with local universities and law schools to provide additional services to our clients. Every semester since Fall 2013, we have sponsored a Juvenile Justice Externship with Villanova Law School. This externship program offers law students the ability to provide intensive attention to a small number of juvenile clients while handling their cases from the initial detention hearing, to the adjudication hearing, and through the disposition hearing. In this externship, fact investigation is a critical component, requiring the extern to conduct hands-on investigation, draft and serve subpoenas, interview witnesses and conduct online research. Externs research treatment programs and rehabilitative services to advocate at the disposition hearing. In turn, clients receive holistic representation through a student attorney who is closely supervised in each aspect of their case.
