The Domestic Violence Litigation Clinic is a two-semester,
eight-credit clinic (four credits/semester) open to second- and
third-year students in good academic standing as well as to evening
students who have significant availability during workday hours.
Evidence and Trial Advocacy are pre- or co-requisites. Clinic
students are also encouraged to take the Intensive Trial Advocacy,
Pre-trial Advocacy, Family Law and the Sexual Assault
All students in the Clinic must participate in the Domestic
Violence Litigation Clinic Seminar, which covers substantive areas
of law likely to be encountered in Clinic cases, trial advocacy and
other necessary skills. The seminar meets once a week for two
hours, either at the Law School or at NYLAG’s office at 7 Hanover
Square in Manhattan, and also includes case reviews and skills
simulation and critique.
In addition to taking the seminar class, Clinic students are also
required to attend individual case meetings with Adjunct Professors
Susser and Rivera at NYLAG.
