DVPO and SAPO volunteer programs

Students who have completed their first year of law school are eligible to volunteer to work in the Domestic Violence Protection Order (DVPO) & Sexual Assault Protection Order (SAPO) online clinics. Students work directly with petitioners to assist them in filling out protection order petitions as accurately and thoroughly as possible. Volunteers are referred to as interns. Interns set up a profile page on LegalAtoms.com and get “hired” by petitioners directly from that website based on the availability set by the intern. Full training and support occur throughout the process to the intern from on-call attorneys, mentors and Dr. Bowen.
