Student Legal Clinics

University of Wyoming College of Law offers student clinicals to provide experienceStudent Legal Clinics are a program offered to UW Law students to expose students to a wide range of real experiences in the practice of law.  Caseloads are actual cases, and students work with approved Law faculty and the client to work on the case.  It is not a simulation.  

Six student legal clinics are offered in:

  1. Civil Legal Services

  2. Defender Aid Program

  3. Energy, Environmental and Natural Resources

  4. Family and Child Legal Advocacy

  5. International Human Rights

  6. Prosecution Assistance Program

Student Eligibility:

  1. Some programs are available to students who have completed two semesters of full-time study and are in good standing, while others require four semesters.

  2. Students receive three credit hours per semester.

  3. Students are required to devote a minimum of 150 hours to the program.

  4. Enrollment may be limited in the interest of affording students maximum educational benefit. However, every effort is made to accommodate each student who desires the benefits of clinical experience.

Clinical Faculty:

A full-time faculty member directly supervises each clinical program. There are no adjunct or staff members between the faculty supervisors and student interns. A student director is appointed for each program to help the faculty supervisor administer the program.

The faculty supervisor is professionally responsible for the students in the program. Therefore, particular emphasis is placed on professional responsibility to the client, the profession, and the community.
