The criminal justice clinics at UW Law were formally named after founder Frank Remington in November 1996. But the Law School’s clinical programming got its start much earlier than that. Its beginnings can be traced to 1964, with the launch of the Correctional Internship Program (later renamed the Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons Program).
The center now houses one of the oldest, largest and most diverse clinical legal programs in the country. Current programs include: Legal Assistance to Institutionalized Persons, Oxford Federal Project, Wisconsin Innocence Project, Family Law Project, Restorative Justice Project, Criminal Appeals Project, and Federal Appeals Project.
