LAIP provides assistance to incarcerated persons in some federal & state prisons. They frequently need legal services concerning their convictions or sentences, pending fines or charges, and related civil problems.  Lawyers and law students are assigned to inmates in maximum or medium-security institutions in the Wisconsin State prison system, and to the federal inmates at FCI-Oxford and Oxford Prison Camp.

LAIP conducts regular screening interviews, and an inmate who wants assistance from LAIP should not write or call LAIP but rather sign up for an "LAIP interview" at the institution.

Participation in this program is available to students who have completed their first year of law school. Most students enroll in the full-time LAIP summer session. However, as space allows, students may also be able to enroll part-time during the academic year.
