Clinical Law Program Still Accepting Applications

Thinking about taking a clinic this Fall? Interested in building your legal skills? Want a chance to provide quality legal services to actual clients in a supportive environment?

As part of the COL’s experiential learning program, we offer four clinical courses: the Civil Justice Clinic, the Criminal Defense Clinic, the Foreclosure Mediation Clinic, and the Health Advocacy Clinic. These clinics offer students the chance to represent clients in a variety of settings on litigation, transactional and alternative dispute resolution matters.

The Clinic Application for Fall is available from the College of Law website.

Applications are still being accepted on a rolling basis as long as space is available.

Please note: The Civil Justice Clinic seminar class will meet on Monday from 4:00 to 5:50 and the Criminal Defense Clinic will have their seminar class on Wednesday from 4:00 to 5:50. The Health Advocacy Clinic will have its seminar class on Monday from 2:30 to 4:20. The Foreclosure Mediation Clinic seminar class will be scheduled based on student availability. All clinic seminars will be held at Swen Parson.

Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the clinical faculty if you need any additional information about one of the clinics.
