Do you want to help survivors of domestic violence? Do you speak Spanish? The Domestic Violence Law Clinic could use your help. We need students who are willing to volunteer their time to help interpret legal interviews for clients who speak only Spanish. We also can use assistance in translating documents from English into Spanish. Our clinic will be interviewing clients on Tuesday and Thursdays, beginning January 29 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. through April 22. Prior experience in interpreting for clients is preferred. For more information, please contact Bertha Fresquez at 626-5232.

College of Law Semester Abroad Programs.  The College of Law has several programs that permit UA JD students to spend a semester abroad with full credit toward their JD degree. The NACLE program functions with four Canadian law schools, British Columbia, Ottawa, McGill, and Dalhousie. We have a long term relationship for exchanges with the University of Puerto Rico, an ABA accredited law school in San Juan. (Reasonable Spanish language fluency is necessary.) We are working on completing the arrangements for a new exchange program with the University of Lyon in France; theirs is an English language graduate level program; no fluency in French is required. Anyone interested in a visit for Fall 2008 or Spring 2008 should contact Professor Gantz (gantz@law.arizona.edu) by the end of January.
