Profile

Volunteer Law Students
The students will obtain valuable legal and courtroom experience. Will work with the Self Service Center Project. While supervised by a volunteer attorney, students have the opportunity to meet with pro se litigants and assist them with their family law cases. Participants help clients represent themselves at trial, handle discovery and disclosure requirements, calculate child support, and write motions. This program is a chance for students to practice their client interview skills. Law students work with actual clients through each of the opportunities offered by the Advocate Program. Pro bono participation is an opportunity to work with real clients. This experience enables students to develop a variety of fundamental legal skills that law courses alone cannot teach, such as problem solving, legal research and analysis, counseling, negotiation, litigation, and the recognition and resolution of ethical dilemma. Having developed such skills, a student can market herself to future employers by demonstrating that she has relevant and practical work experience.
