Clinical Legal Education

The law is not your job. It’s your calling.

Your intellect, talent, and aspiration distinguish you as a professional in every challenge you undertake, every case you build, every cause you champion.

In Fordham Law’s Clinical Legal Education Program, you have many opportunities to hone your lawyering skills. Participate in one of our more than a dozen nationally recognized clinics that help solve real problems for real people. Role-play in authentic simulations in our Fundamental Lawyering Skills course. Get out of the classroom and into the legal world through our Externship program.  Practice, practice, practice in our Trial Advocacy course.

Become the complete lawyer who knows the letter of the law and understands its practice. Work with faculty members and peers to help real clients. Develop the skills you need to fast-track your legal career.

Join us to make a difference.
