The Delta Clinic provides direct representation to low-income clients chosen through The Delta Experience. Students taking Delta Clinic must be Rule XV eligible. As such, the Delta Clinic is only open to upper-level students. Students earn six hours of law school credit for this course.
Students must be able to travel with their professor to the Arkansas Delta to conduct follow-up interviews with clients and for court observations and appearances.
Students conduct follow-up interviews with clients and perform fact investigations to ensure a successful outcome in divorce cases. After obtaining Rule XV consents from clients, Delta Clinic students prepare divorce complaints and motions for fee waivers for low-income clients. Next, students obtain service on defendants and write final divorce decrees. Students will then represent their clients in divorce hearings.
