Clinical Program Still Accepting Applications for Fall Semester

Still thinking about taking a clinic this Fall? Worried that you missed out? It's not too late.

The Clinical Law Program is still accepting applications on a space-available basis for the fall semester. Currently, there are spaces available in all four clinics. You must fill out an application to apply for the clinical program. You cannot register for a clinic using MyNIU. The Office of Budget and records will register you after you have turned in your application and it has been approved by the clinical professor.

As part of the College of Law’s experiential learning program, we offer these four clinical courses: the Civil Justice Clinic in Rockford, the Criminal Defense Clinic in Rockford, the Foreclosure Mediation Clinic in Geneva and DeKalb, and the Health Advocacy Clinic in Aurora. These clinics offer students the chance to work with actual clients in a variety of settings on litigation, transactional and alternative dispute resolution matters. Prerequisites and requirements for the clinics are included in the Clinic Application.

The application and instructions are available here.

Please contact a member of the clinical faculty if you need any additional information: Anita Maddali, Associate Professor of Law and Director of Clinics, amaddali@niu.edu; Paul Cain, Clinical Professor, Criminal Defense Clinic, pcain@niu.edu; Wendy Vaughn, Clinical Associate Professor, Civil Justice Clinic, wvaughn@niu.edu; Colleen Boraca, Clinical Assistant Professor, Health Advocacy Clinic, cboraca@niu.edu; and Alan Boudreau, Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor, Foreclosure Mediation Clinic, aboudreau@niu.edu.
