The Community Supervision Legal Assistance Project (CSLAP) is open to 2L and 3L students. CSLAP students, under the supervision of Clinical Professor Judy Olingy, provide a wide range of legal assistance to clients who are on community supervision through the Wisconsin Department of Corrections’ Division of Community Corrections. The clinic emphasizes an interdisciplinary and holistic problem-solving approach to client representation. Students work in collaboration with their clients, each other, and other system actors to develop and implement creative solutions to client re-entry problems that often are complex and challenging. Specific areas of assistance can include family law matters, obtaining government disability benefits, issues concerning monetary obligations from court orders, employment concerns, reinstatement of driver’s licenses, debt issues and housing concerns.
For interested students, there will be an option to continue enrollment in the Spring 2010 for a limited number of clinical credits.
Send Prof. Olingy an e-mail briefly outlining your reasons for wanting to
participate in the project and attach a copy of your resume. Applications are due by
** Please note that one clinical credit equals four hours/week of client work.
