Spring Clinic I (3 or 4 credit option) – 2015
The Robert and Sue Ellen Ackerson Law Clinic represents victims of domestic violence and other low income clients in Jefferson County District & Family Court. Most cases involve Emergency Protective Order hearings and housing/eviction cases.
The Ackerson Law Clinic is a student-run law firm supervised by Professor Shelley Santry. The student attorneys are responsible for handling all aspects of the cases. This includes interviewing the client, prepping the client for the hearing, gathering evidence, participating in hearings as a student attorney, and closing the case.
To be eligible to participate in the clinic, students must have completed 60 hours. This is a requirement under Rules of the Supreme Court (SCR) 2.540 to receive a limited license to practice law.
To apply, send an email to Professor Shelley Santry at email@example.com including the following:
