DV and CPO Clinic

As part of a joint venture with the Legal Aid Society of Greater Cincinnati, UC Law’s Domestic Violence and Civil Protection order Clinic gives students practical experience in the civil setting and provides holistic legal services to survivors of domestic violence. Clinic staff assist students in learning every aspect of civil practice. As they learn skills ranging from how to conduct initial client interviews through all stages of advocacy, the Clinic offers students a supportive environment for entry into the practice of law. Clinic students consult extensively with clients on the benefits and risks of taking legal action, discuss safety concerns, make referrals to other providers (as needed), and represent clients through the civil protection order process.
