Clinical Law Program: Student Information

Why participate in a clinic?

Clinics help students find the passion necessary for a satisfying legal career, provide context for students’ classroom studies, and teach the many skills necessary for competent lawyering.

Clinics teach professional skills that are transferable to many settings: interviewing and counseling clients, negotiating, developing facts, drafting legal documents and policy analyses, preparing for and performing trials, and appeals work. They also gain expertise in areas that are becoming increasingly important in today’s legal practice, including collaboration, meeting facilitation and how to work in a multidisciplinary environment.

Meeting the Public Service Requirement

Students can fulfill the public service requirement by satisfactorily completing a Law School clinic. There is no limit on the number of clinic credits a student can take, but the number of clinical positions available each year is limited.

The Public Service Concentration Track

To satisfy the public service concentration track, students must enroll in either one of the law school’s clinics, or an externship of 8 credits or more.
