This month the VanSickle Family Law Clinic begins another semester of its Pro Se Project at the George Allen, Sr. courthouse. The program assists pro se litigants in filling out forms relating to divorce and child custody disputes. Just this past spring, the students in the clinic handled 357 cases. Attendance continues to increase each semester, as word of the clinic spreads throughout the legal community of Dallas. Many self-represented litigants simply have questions about the process that the students can quickly answer or guide them in the right direction. Not only are the litigants extremely grateful, but it is also a valuable learning opportunity for the students working in the clinic.
The Pro Se Project takes place every Friday, from 9:00-12:00, at the George Allen, Sr. courthouse.
