Clinical Program Summer and Fall Informational Meeting

Thinking about taking a clinic this Summer or Fall? The clinical faculty and students will be holding a clinic information meeting on Monday, April 4th at Noon in Room 150. As part of the COL’s experiential learning program, we offer these 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 work with actual clients in a variety of settings on litigation, transactional and alternative dispute resolution matters. This meeting will provide an overview of each clinic. Current and former clinical students will discuss their clinical experiences, and the faculty will explain the clinic application process for Summer and Fall. Professor Sheila Maloney, Director of Externships, will also answer questions about externships to help you choose the right experiential learning opportunity for you. Lunch will be served.

Reminder: Students matriculating at the College of Law beginning in Fall 2015 (current 1Ls in the class of 2018 or later) are required to complete a clinic or externship to graduate.
