Appellate Litigation Clinic at St. Thomas University School of Law

Starting in the Spring Semester 2005, the Law Offices of Public Defender Carlos J. Martinez and the St. Thomas University School of Law will join together to offer third year law students a unique opportunity to learn through experience in the law schoolís Appellate Litigation Clinic. Third year law students at St. Thomas University Law School, certified by the Florida Supreme Court and under the supervision of Assistant Public Defender Howard K. Blumberg, will be representing Public Defender clients in their appeals in the Third District Court of Appeal of Florida. The students will write the briefs and present oral argument in the appellate court. Students will spend two hours each week in a class taught by Mr. Blumberg, a minimum of three office hours at the Law Offices of Public Defender Carlos J. Martinez, and whatever additional time is necessary to properly prepare the appeals to which they have been assigned. This joint effort between the Law Offices of Public Defender Carlos J. Martinez and the St. Thomas University School of Law will provide a valuable service to both the clients of the Public Defenderís Office and the students at the law school.
