The Community Supervision Legal Assistance Project (CSLAP) has a very limited number of spring 2008 slots open to 2L and 3L students.  CSLAP students, under the supervision of Clinical Professor Judy Olingy, provide a wide range of legal assistance to clients who are on community supervision through the Wisconsin Department of Corrections’ Division of Community Corrections. The clinic emphasizes an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to client representation. Students work in collaboration with their clients, each other, and other system actors to develop and implement creative solutions to client re-entry problems that often are complex, difficult and challenging. Specific areas of assistance can include family law matters, obtaining government disability benefits, questions about monetary obligations from court orders, employment concerns, reinstatement of driver’s licenses, debt issues and housing concerns.

 

                                                                                                                       

To apply: Send Prof. Olingy an e-mail briefly outlining your reasons for wanting to participate in the project and attach a copy of your resume.  Please note that one clinical credit equals four hours/week.  Applications are due by November 26, 2008.  Prof. Olingy’s e-mail address is: jeolingy@wisc.edu.  If you would like to speak with Prof. Olingy to learn about CSLAP in greater detail, you can call her at 262-4870. She also can give you the names of students who presently are enrolled. They would be happy to “give you the scoop.”
