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.
In recognition of the importance of clinical and experiential education in preparing students for the practice of law, Fordham Law School guarantees to every interested J.D. candidate the opportunity to participate in either an in-house clinic or an externship prior to graduation, as long as the student satisfies applicable deadlines and requirements.
