Clinical Law Programs and Related Research Guides

The UW Law School's highly regarded clinical programs provide a hands-on, practical learning experience for many students.  And if part of that experiential learning involves legal research, the Law Library has you covered.  There are a variety of Research Guides, compiled by reference librarians, which relate directly to the work done in many of the clinics.  These guides highlight the key resources used by practitioners in these specialties:

Center for Patient Partnerships / Health Law

Family Court Clinic and Family Law Project /  Divorce and Child Custody / Support

Immigrant Justice Clinic / Immigration Law

Law & entrepreneurship Clinic / Technology Transfer & Commercialization of IP

Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons / Criminal Law and Procedure

Neighborhood Law Clinic / Low-Cost Legal Resources in Dane County

Prosecution Project and Public Defender Project / Criminal Law and Procedure

In addition, the reference librarians will be glad to create new guides which support curriculum needs and are always ready to assist students with their research questions.  Simply stop by the reference desk for a quick consultation.
