Description

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CLINIC IS A 6-HR. CLINIC.  Grading is Pass/Fail.  The clinical component of this course will involve student representation of domestic violence survivors in a myriad of legal problems, including custody, divorce, visitation, housing, protective orders, parole advocacy and occasionally in consumer and public assistance matters. 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 not be on scholastic probation. No other clinics may be taken at the same time as this clinic. APPLY ONLINE: https://law.utexas.edu/clinics/application-information/
