Survivors of violence and trauma are among the least likely to seek or obtain redress for their victimization, either through administrative remedies or through the court system. The Survivors of Violence Clinic, formerly the Justice for Victims of Crime Clinic, aims to change that reality. In this clinic, you will spend the semester dissecting the ways our legal system responds to violence and trauma through the lenses of race, gender, nationality, and poverty. You will represent survivors of violence and trauma in a broad array of legal matters such as immigration, CINA proceedings, and administrative law claims. By adopting a client-centered lawyering approach, you will help your clients find solutions that meet their legal and non-legal needs as they seek to move forward and heal.
Being in this clinic and working with Professor Meadows has definitely exceeded my expectations. I've learned so much in this clinic and truly enjoyed my experience.
