Scott Kanchuger (Berkeley Law ’20/EBCLC)

Spring 2019 Education, Defense & Justice for Youth: Youth Defender Clinical Student

Scott’s time with the Youth Defender Clinic is best exemplified by both his extraordinary work ethic and his tenacity for constantly honing and refining his craft. The thoughtful and analytic approach Scott brought to his cases made him perfectly suited to represent a young man whose career goal of becoming a registered nurse was sorely jeopardized by the existence of court records surrounding his involvement with the juvenile justice system nearly 20 years ago. The brief Scott drafted for this client ably interwove impeccable legal analysis with a powerful narrative recounting how the heartbreaking trauma his client suffered as a child ultimately led to him getting in trouble – the brief was not only successful in convincing the judge to seal his client’s juvenile court records, but continues to serve as an invaluable resource for future clinic students.
