Some young people accused of crimes are finding themselves in a tight spot when it comes to finding legal defense. A new push to make sure they're getting representation in court is emerging from the University of St. Thomas School of Law

University of St. Thomas law professor Rachel Moran and her students are part of a burgeoning effort to not only find juveniles accused of crimes--many of whom have never received a even a cursory civics lesson--legal representation, but also give law students crucial real-world experience in a court setting.

Moran's students, in exchange for an internship-like experience, provide juveniles, who are ineligible for a public defender and whose families cannot afford to hire an attorney, legal representation at no cost to the juveniles.
