The Domestic Violence Law Clinic (DVLC) at the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law provides students the opportunity to assist survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) with legal issues, including representing them to obtain Orders of Protection against their abusers. The DVLC is an interdisciplinary legal clinic that provides IPV survivors with pro bono legal services and advice while connecting clients to needed non-legal services. Trained law students and supervising attorneys represent IPV survivors in Tucson City Court and Pima County Superior Court to obtain protection orders requiring their abusers to stay away from and not contact them. The clinic also provides clients with advice and counsel and referrals on their custody, child support, landlord/tenant, public benefits, and immigration issues.
