In the Litigation Clinic, qualified UALR law students receive a special license to practice law in Arkansas under the guidance of a supervising attorney. Clinic students learn the substantive law involved in each case while practicing the important skills of client interviewing, fact investigation, drafting pleadings and papers, witness preparation, negotiation, trial strategy and trial presentation. Most Litigation Clinic cases deal with family law or juvenile delinquency. Students may represent clients who are victims of domestic violence, children accused of delinquent acts, parents seeking to establish or modify visitation or custody arrangements, spouses seeking divorce, or family members establishing guardianship over disabled relatives.
