Student Clinic Director: Halinka Zolcik

Halinka was born in Prague, Czech Republic and immigrated to the United States as a small child. She grew up in Gillette, WY.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. Prior to attending law school, Halinka worked at the 19th Judicial District in Weld County,CO as a court judicial assistant for two years. The experience made her want to pursue a career in law. She was drawn to the University of Wyoming by the small class sizes, small faculty to student ratio, and the promise of clinical education.

So far during her law school career, she has participated the Voir Dire Competition, served as the president for the Wyoming Trial Lawyer's Association, and is currently serving as the Vice President for the Wyoming Society for International Lawyers.

Halinka has been a part of the International Human Rights Clinic every semester since the summer of 2015. She wanted to become the Student Director of the Clinic because it would enable and empower her with practical and leadership skills for her future career.

“Clinical education is the single most important thing that a person can do to enhance their future career while in law school,” She says. “Clinics are a way that a student can learn practical lawyering skills, have their own case load, and tremendously improve their writing skills.”

She speaks Czech, Polish, French, and Spanish, and regularly utilizes her language skills.
