Law Clerk for Bain Law Publishes Law Review Article

Law Clerk, Julia Durst, Published in the Mitchell Hamline Law Review

Most state and federal prisons still prohibit inmates from receiving methadone treatment while incarcerated. That decision feeds into poor outcomes around disease, relapse, overdose, and recidivism. It's also unconstitutional. Bain Law's very own law clerk, Julia Durst, writes about this in Barring Methadone Behind Bars: How Prisons Err When Denying Methadone Treatment to Inmates with Opioid Use Disorder. In addition to clerking at Bain Law, Durst is a third-year student at Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Prior to law school, she spent over ten years working in addiction treatment programs as a counselor and clinical supervisor.
