B688 Community Legal Clinic

Description The Community Legal Clinic functions as a law firm comprised of second and third year law students who provide legal representation to clients while acting under the supervision of a licensed supervising attorney. The objective of the course is to allow students to gain practical experience while using the excellent intellectual and analytical skills gained elsewhere in the law school. The course has two components: 1) a classroom seminar and 2) the actual representation of clients. Clinic clients are local residents with family law problems involving dissolutions of marriage, child custody, child support, parenting time, paternity, guardianship, adoption and abuse and neglect. Most, if not all, Clinic clients have limited incomes and may not be able to afford private counsel. Clinic students have primary responsibility for assigned cases and may be expected to perform some or all of the following tasks: client interviewing, drafting legal documents, engaging in discovery (including taking formal depositions), negotiating, motion practice and trials. Students have weekly office hours and supervision sessions with their supervising attorney to discuss progress in their cases. The seminar component consists of a weekly class meeting during which the students are introduced to the relevant substantive and procedural areas of the law. To be eligible for the Clinic students must have completed one-half () of the hours required toward graduation and have completed or be taking the Legal Professions course. Enrollment is limited. Students may enroll for three (3) credit hours per semester, for a maximum of six (6) credit hours for this clinic.

Note This course satisfies the professional skills requirement.
