Alec Swafford, Class of '12

Former Student/Alumni

As a Clinic student, I became part of a team representing clients on Texas’s death row, and I had the chance to help save our clients from execution. Clinical students are exposed to a wide array of work. Students go to death row, go on an investigation trip to interview witnesses, research and write about complex legal issues, and help craft strategies to get relief for your clients. A student in the Capital Punishment Clinic will have a very educational and rewarding experience. The Capital Punishment Clinic was the best thing I did in law school.
