DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CLINIC IS A 6-HR.

The class sessions will cover the matters relevant in civil domestic violence cases: safety planning, comprehensive intake, case analysis and handling, investigation, negotiation, trial preparation, discovery, and temporary and permanent orders, including protective orders. Further, students will perform parole advocacy on behalf of survivors of domestic violence who are in prison due to their victimization.  Prerequisites: Students enrolling should have completed 43 credit hours before beginning the Clinic, and not be on scholastic probation. No other clinics may be taken at the same time as this clinic.
