Divorce Court Assistance Project: A Joint Project of the UW Law School & Dane Co. Courts

In cooperation with the Dane County Courts, the UW Law School has organized the Divorce Court Assistance Project. DCAP is a hands-on experience for law students, designed to address the problem of unrepresented litigants by providing assistance to the judges who handle divorce cases with unrepresented parties in Dane County.
Under the supervision of Clinical Assistant Professor Marsha Mansfield, students work with the parties to prepare their cases for decision or stipulation. Law students will not serve as advocates for either party, but rather as facilitators designated by family court judges to guide individuals through the legal process.
