Family and Child Legal Advocacy Clinic

Student Clinic Director: Heidi Reeves-Messner

Originally from Sunnyvale, Cali., Heidi attended the University of Oregon for her undergraduate education, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Driven by a strong desire to help people, Heidi decided to apply to law school where she felt helping people to navigate the legal system, particularly the under-represented and marginalized, was her higher calling.

Heidi has worked in the clinic for the past year, and has also gain experience working in an externship with the Wyoming Coalition Against Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault (WCADVSA). She has also been an active participant within the law school, serving as a member of Equal Justice Wyoming.

Heidi was drawn to the Clinic Director position, not only be her desire to help people, but also to utilize her organizational abilities and challenge herself in a leadership role.

Following graduation, Heidi hopes to continue to practice law in the arena of family, child, and domestic advocacy.
