Public Defender Clinic

The Public Defender Clinic (PDC) is a public service, criminal defense-adjacent program for law students launching in fall 2020. The PDC has two goals:

  1. To allow law students to get one-on-one advocacy experience while helping presently incarcerated individuals apply for sentence commutation, ultimately advocating for them at the Oklahoma Pardon and Parole Board
  2. To reduce Oklahoma’s incarceration rate directly and by supporting legislation, with an emphasis on Oklahoma’s female incarceration crisis
