Director of the Interdisciplinary Mental and Physical Health Law Clinic


Caroline Wick is the director of the Interdisciplinary Mental and Physical Health Law Clinic, where she teaches the clinic seminar and supervises students’ representation of clients in access to healthcare, public benefits, and decision-making matters. Before joining Villanova Law, she was a practitioner-in-residence at American University Washington College of Law with the Disability Rights Law Clinic for three years, where she co-taught the clinic seminar and supervised students representing clients in a wide range of cases implicating disability rights, including special education and Medicaid appeals. She also taught legal ethics.

Before becoming a clinician, Wick was a senior attorney with Children’s Law Center (CLC) in Washington, DC. She worked in CLC’s medical-legal partnership and was the lead on-site attorney at a community-based medical center. She represented parents and children in the areas of special education, housing conditions, public benefits, and access to healthcare, and she trained and mentored pro bono attorneys. Prior to working at CLC, Wick was a law clerk for a family magistrate judge in the Baltimore City Circuit Court.

Wick is a graduate of Tulane Law School and Tulane School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. She received the 2015 Brian P. McSherry Award from the law school for showing the greatest dedication to the pro bono program.
