The Clinical Law Program

Each year, the UW Clinical Law Program offers diverse practice opportunities to UW law students as they prepare to become Leaders for the Global Common Good. Students work on real cases, transactions or projects for academic credit supervised by experienced faculty members.

Clinic students may advocate for clients in litigation, negotiate or mediate disputes, advise entrepreneurs and companies,  develop policy by drafting legislation and getting it enacted, or gathering information and writing reports for  legislative bodies, or engage in community education by teaching high school students about the law.  Currently over 65% of our J.D. students graduate having taken at least one clinic.

Clinic Opportunities
Clinic offerings change from year to year, depending on faculty and funding availability.  We expect to offer the bolded opportunities at left on a regular basis through at least 2015-2016, and the others listed at least for 2013-2014, except as noted.

UW Law also offers a full range of externship opportunities with non-profit or government agencies.
