Info Session this Thursday: Robert and Sue Ellen Ackerson Law Clinic
The Law Clinic is a student run 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. The Law Clinic gives students real court room experience with real clients.
On Thursday, October 24, Professor Santry will discuss the opportunities that exist for students to work with clients who are victims of domestic violence in Jefferson Family Court or clients who have forcible detainer (eviction) cases before Jefferson District Court. New for spring 2014 - Clinic I will be offered as three or four credit hours. This class meets the skills graduation requirement and satisfies the Capstone Course Requirement in the Litigation Skills Certificate Program.
Professor Santry will also provide information regarding the Domestic Violence seminar that will be offered during Spring Break week. The program will begin at 12:05 in Room 275. Lunch will be provided.
