Defender Aid Clinic

Student Clinic Director: Andrew Sickenberger


Originally from Rockwood, Maine, Andrew now calls Wyoming home. He attended Husson University for both his undergraduate and master’s degrees in criminal justice before deciding the pursue a degree in law.

Andrew chose to attend Wyoming specifically because of the work that had been highlighted in the Defender Aid Clinic and for the unmatched contact with judges, attorneys, and especially the Wyoming Supreme Court Justices. He knew UW would offer him incredible experience and unfettered access to mentors and practitioners within the Wyoming Bar.

His experience in law school has lived up to his expectations. Andrew has participated in the Delta Theta Phi (DTP) law fraternity - serving as the vice president, and has competed in the ABA and Oil & Gas Negotiation Competitions. In the summer of 2019, he externed with the Albany County Public Defender's Office, and has worked in the Defender Aid Clinic since January of 2020.

Approaching law school as if it was a job, Andrew has worked hard to serve clients with the best possible representation. Applying that mentality, Andrew has appeared before the Carbon County District Court and is slated to appear before the Laramie Municipal Court, the Cheyenne Municipal Court, and the Wyoming Supreme Court. Being a clinic director has been an incredible opportunity to continue to practice law while still learning, and to step into a leadership role for his fellow students.

His post-graduates aspirations are to work as a Public Defender in Wyoming.
