- When is the Domestic Violence Clinic available? The clinic operates during the school year, from September through early May. The clinic is closed during the summer.
- Is there a wait list for legal services with the Domestic Violence Clinic? Yes, however the waitlist is currently closed. When the clinic is accepting cases and if your case is within our scope of services, you can apply for our waitlist by completing an intake application over the phone. This is a series of questions which should take 15-20 minutes to complete. You will receive a call back to be notified if your case has been added to the wait list. Being on the wait list does not guarantee that the Clinic will take on your case. It is an opportunity to meet with the attorney, law student, and social worker. The attorney will decide if the clinic can assist with the case after meeting with you.
