The Civil Legal Services Clinic (CLSC, formerly the Legal Services Program) is the College of Law’s oldest clinic, having provided legal assistance to Wyoming citizens for over 20 years. Student interns enrolled in the CLSC represent low-income and marginalized individuals across the state who could not otherwise afford legal representation. The CLSC’s mission is to provide legal services in a broad range of general civil legal matters.  As such, students' caseloads are diverse and touch on many areas of civil practice, including housing, consumer rights, education, veterans’ service-connected disability benefits, and other public benefits laws. Under the supervision of the Clinic Director, student interns interview and counsel clients, investigate facts, strategize case options, negotiate with opponents, draft pleadings, and argue in court.  In addition, to provide student interns with hands-on exposure to the business realities of legal practice, they maintain case files while also managing time-keeping and other organizational activities. Depending on the need, students may also work on special projects including conducting research and providing support to advocates who are testifying on legislative matters.  Finally, student interns work closely with the Wyoming legal community, developing important relationships that will support the students through their professional lives.
