- In the next few weeks, the Frank J. Remington Center will begin
recruiting student applicants for next year's prison-based clinical
projects: the Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons Project
(LAIP), the Wisconsin Innocence Project, the Oxford Federal Project, the
Family Law Project, the Restorative Justice Project, and the Reentry
- At the same time, the Remington Center's Economic Justice
Institute will begin recruiting student applicants for next year's
community-based clinical projects: the Family Court Assistance
Project/Restraining Order Clinic, the Neighborhood Law Project, the
Consumer Law Clinic, and the Immigration Clinic.
- Altogether, these clinical projects provide full-time summer clinical
opportunities for about 80 law students. Students in all of the projects
will enroll full-time during the 2010 summer session, and continue
part-time during the 2010-11 academic year.
- To kick things off, the Remington Center's students and clinical
faculty will discuss the clinics at two informal "coffee and
donuts" sessions for 1Ls. All interested 1Ls are
invited to come to these sessions, learn about the clinics, and enjoy
morning treats. The sessions are scheduled as follows.
- Economic Justice Institute Clinics: Wednesday, October
21st from 7:45-8:45 a.m. in Lubar Commons
- Prison-Based Clinics: Monday, October
26th from 7:45-8:45 a.m. in Lubar Commons
- Economic Justice Institute Clinics: Wednesday, October 21st from 7:45-8:45 a.m. in Lubar Commons
- We apologize for the early hour for each session, but we wanted to
avoid conflicts with first-year classes. And maybe the coffee and
donuts will help!
- In addition, in late October and early November, representatives of
the prison-based clinics will visit first-year Criminal Law classes, and
representatives of the Economic Justice Institute clinics will visit
first-year Civil Procedure classes, in order to describe educational
opportunities provided to students in the clinics.
- Students will be accepted into next year's clinics through a competitive application process. As part of the process, students will be expected to attend small-group information sessions and/or participate in individual interviews. Students will submit a written applications by November 18, 2009. The Center's clinical faculty will review the applications and notify students, prior to the winter break, about whether they have been accepted into one of next year's clinics. S
