The University of Wyoming College of Law's Legal Services Program (UWLSP), the ASUW Student Legal Services Clinic (ASUW SLSC) and the DV Legal Assistance Project (DVLAP) strive to address the unmet legal needs of Wyoming's low income population.
Law students enrolled in UWLSP, ASUW SLSC and the DVLAP work hard to bridge the justice gap that exists in our state by providing comprehensive legal representation in civil, non-fee generating cases to people whose income is at or below 125% of the federal poverty level, including those who are victims of domestic violence, dating violence, stalking and sexual assault.
