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,
advise entrepreneurs and companies, develop policy by
drafting legislation and getting it enacted, commenting on regulations or gathering information and writing reports for legislative bodies, or engage in
community education by teaching high school students about the law.
Currently between 60 and 70% of our J.D. students graduate having taken at least one clinic.
Clinic offerings change from year to year, depending on faculty and funding availability.
UW Law also offers externship opportunities with a full range of non-profit or government agencies, and with a limited number of private in-house counsel and solo or small firms.
