Registration & Requirements

Registration for the Domestic Violence Representation Project is limited to third-year students. A lottery registration meeting for Externship and Clinical Programs is held approximately one month into the spring semester of your 2nd year. Notices are posted throughout the Law School and emailed to the 2nd year student listserv. After the lottery registration meeting, students are given an opportunity to register for their program preferences online.

Please note: Students may not enroll in any externship programs while enrolled in the Domestic Violence Representation Project.

Requirements

  • Evidence is a pre-requisite and must be taken prior to enrollment.
  • Trial Advocacy is a pre- or co-requisite and must be taken prior to or during enrollment.
  • While not required, Family Law and/or Domestic Violence Law are recommended as pre- or co-requisites.
  • Students registered must be available on either Mondays or Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in order to be available for court. Students may not take other law school classes that meet on both Monday and Wednesday mornings, but may take a class that meets on one of those days.
  • All students enrolled are required to participate in trainings at the beginning of the semester of their enrollment. Those trainings will be on 3 evenings during the first two weeks of the semester. Information will be given out about the dates and times of those trainings in advance.
