Table 10: Using Legal Communication and Research Skills in an Exchange for Change

I will share my experiences working with UM Law students to teach Legal Writing and Analysis to incarcerated individuals at Dade Correctional Institution. In partnership with HOPE and Exchange for Change, a non-profit that brings educational courses to incarcerated individuals, I, along with UM Law students, teach persuasive writing and analysis to “inside” students. The UM Law students facilitate portions of the sessions and work side by side with their inside counterparts collaborating on their written and oral advocacy projects. This experiential learning opportunity is breaking down barriers and stereotypes through the exchange of ideas and connections by bringing legal education to a population most impacted by our justice system and at the same time, honing the lawyering skills of our own law students.
