Choosing a Clinic

How to choose a clinic from among the 15 we offer? Don’t be daunted.

Approach the choice in three different ways.

1. Develop valuable, transferable skills

The skills you acquire and hone in clinics are assets you can use to impress prospective employers after you graduate. 

2. Provide legal service to the community

Through impact litigation, working with clients, and working to reform legislative law you will help others and help yourself find your calling.

3. Explore an area of new interest

Whether you know which area of law you intend to practice in or are struggling to choose between multiple options, you will expand your knowledge base in a new area. Whatever your choice, know that professors and peers will offer the support and guidance you need to develop your lawyering skills.
