Family and Child Legal Advocacy Clinic

Student Clinic Director: Emily Sloan


Hailing from Aurora, Colo., Emily earned a bachelor and a master’s degree from Regis University before attending the University of Wyoming for law school.

She has been one of the most visible faces in her law school career, serving in a multitude of capacities. She was a prominent member of the Potter Law Club Board in multiple roles, is an active member of Wyoming Law Students for Equal Justice, worked at the law library circulation desk, competed in the ABA Negotiations Competition as well as the Richard E. Day Client Counseling Competition, and has worked in the Family and Child Legal Advocacy Clinic.  She was also a finalist for the prestigious Brimmer Scholarship at the College of Law.

Outside the law school, she has worked as a legal extern for the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commissions, and as an intern for the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office – Civil Division.

Drawn to the student director position in the clinic in order to better serve the Wyoming community, Emily is excited to be a dual advocate for the clinic clients while assisting the student attorneys in the clinic as they undertake similar cases, struggles and triumphs.

Following graduation, she hopes to continue working in family law or as an attorney for a state agency.
