Description:

Students represent clients in civil litigation matters under close supervision in a model law office setting. The Civil Litigation Clinic represents low-income individuals and families who do not have resources to hire an attorney. Because the Civil Litigation Clinic has developed a good reputation for providing high-quality legal work, clients are referred from agencies, courts, and lawyers, or they contact the Clinic directly.

Cases include family law matters such as: divorce, child custody, and order of protection proceedings; debtor cases; and general civil litigation cases, all of which provide participating students with a broad range of experiences. Students take real depositions in a variety of cases, interview clients—both formally and informally, in-person and by telephone—investigate facts, and counsel clients on how to prepare for court. In addition, there are numerous court appearances and some contested hearings, providing students with practical knowledge about how matters are carried out in litigation.
