In order to determine if you are eligible for our services, please fill out the form entitled “University Legal Clinic Virtual Intake”. This will help us determine whether or not you are enrolled at UWM and your issue is not against another UWM student/entity (We may only assist students who are currently paying segregated fees). Once you fill out the form, please take the time to thoroughly read and sign the form entitled “Confidentiality Agreement”. It should be noted that the completion of both these forms does not ensure that we will be able to offer you our services. Once we have confirmed that you are eligible, you will receive an email with a link to the form that most closely aligns with your needs. Please take the time to fill out all forms as accurately as possible and to the best of your abilities.
