The Frank J. Remington Center is a law-in-action program of the UW Law School made up of several clinical projects dedicated to teaching, service, and research. The Center was founded forty years ago by the late Professor Frank J. Remington in order to provide students with a "learning center" in the area of criminal justice. Today the Center includes civil as well as criminal projects. The Center provides law students with the opportunity to develop the substantive knowledge, professional skills, and judgment necessary to excel as attorneys; provides high-quality service in individual cases; and engages in empirical research necessary to bring about systemic improvements. Students receive course credit for their clinical work.
The Frank J. Remington Center provides a tremendous array of clinical experiences to students at the University of Wisconsin Law School. But regardless of their variety, all of the Center's clinical projects are motivated by core educational values. Grounded in these values, we have developed a consistent philosophy of clinical education at the Remington Center. Read more.
As a "learning center," the Remington Center has long fostered an environment in which students and clinical faculty can gather information on legal issues and empirical problems, reflect on them in a collaborative setting, and share their findings with the legal and scholarly communities. The Center's faculty and students have a long and impressive list of publications and appellate litigation. Read More.
The Frank J. Remington Center has always had a strong commitment to service, broadly defined--to low-income citizens, incarcerated individuals, correctional agencies, the public defender system, prosecutors’ offices, victims, policy makers, and the larger community. Read more.
