A volunteer organization staffed by University of Wisconsin Law students and supervising attorneys. The purpose of the clinic is to help provide representation to the unemployed in the local community.
The Clinic only deals with claims involving WI Unemployment Law.
The goal is to help clients file unemployment compensation claims with the WI Dept. of Workforce Development. UAC acts primarily as an info center but also provides student advocates to appear at the administrative hearings. Also may help clients write briefs to the Labor & Industry Review Commission to obtain unemployment benefits.
The clinic provides free legal representation to unemployed workers in connection with their unemployment compensation hearings and LIRC appeals. Students at UW Law School interview claimants Monday evenings from 7 to 9 pm at the Labor Temple on Park Street. To schedule an appointment, call the United Way at 211.
