Description of Service
The Unemployment Compensation Clinic focuses on unemployment compensation matters for low-income clients. Students receive valuable training in litigation skills for direct application in their representation of unemployment compensation clients.
Each unemployment compensation case gives students experience in client interviewing, case preparation, direct and cross-examination, application of the rules of evidence, and oral presentation before a referee. All students represent multiple clients over the course of the clinic and therefore have the opportunity to develop and hone their trial advocacy skills.
The Unemployment Compensation Clinic assists low-income clients with unemployment compensation matters including voluntary quit, willful misconduct, overpayment, offsets, seasonal work and eligibility issues.
