Since 2005, students in the Domestic Violence and Civil Protection Order Clinic have represented over 350 victims of domestic violence, stalking, sexual assault and human trafficking in civil protection order hearings. The Clinic provides students training on practicing law and the art of trial advocacy in the context of domestic violence. In addition, it gives students hands-on experience counseling and representing live clients from the community. Taken in their second or third year, the semester-long program includes extensive training before student representation of clients begins. Students work at Legal Aid Society of Cincinnati. Often called rewarding work and well worth the time commitment, the Clinic experience is consistently ranked as one of students' best law school experiences.
