Professor Danielle Cover joined the University of Wyoming College of Law faculty in the summer of 2014 to direct the Civil Legal Services Clinic. Her teaching and scholarship focus on improving the overall quality of lawyering through identification and examination of attorney motivations.

Prior to joining the College of Law faculty, Professor Cover was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the Bronfein Family Law Clinic at the University of Baltimore where she supervised students representing family law cases across the spectrum of issues from divorce and custody to adoption and protection orders.

Professor Cover’s clinical work emerges from her years of practice throughout the State of Maryland at organizations committed to ending domestic violence. At the House of Ruth, YWCA of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, and the Women’s Law Center, Professor Cover represented victims of domestic violence in family law and safety proceedings. In addition, she supervised and trained new lawyers entering the programs. At the Homeless Persons Representation Project, Professor Cover directed the Pro Bono Program, working with attorney volunteers, student volunteers, and community partners to provide pro bono services to homeless persons across the state. Professor Cover also previously served as Pro Bono Coordinator and Externship Director of the John and Terry Levin Center for Public Service and Public Interest Law at Stanford Law School.

Professor Cover is a member of the Maryland State bar and is certified to practice in the State of Wyoming.
