Students in the Domestic Violence and Juvenile Law Clinic represent clients in cases involving child custody, protection orders, adoptions, and child abuse and neglect. The clinic seeks to represent survivors of domestic violence in any case it accepts.
Admission is by permission of the instructor, and it is recommended, but not required, that students have completed at least 59 credit hours so that they can apply for certification as legal interns under Rule II of the Ohio Supreme Court Rules. This certification allows a student, under the professor’s supervision, to conduct a trial and otherwise speak on the record in court.
