Criminal Justice Fellowship

Center for Criminal Justice Fellowships are awarded to rising 3L students each summer. These students work to support the activities of the Center including assisting the Criminal Law, Procedure, Evidence & Ethics program. This all-day program provides a comprehensive update in criminal law, procedure, evidence and ethics. Leading experts review recent developments in confessions, search and seizure, identification procedures and evidence law.

The program honors the late Professor Robert M. Pitler, a member of the Law School’s faculty from 1988 until his death in 2015. Professor Pitler was a leading scholar and practitioner in the area of criminal law who was beloved by generations of students and his colleagues.
