Space Available in Spring Legal Clinics - Applications Accepted on a Rolling Basis

The Civil Justice Clinic, Criminal Defense Clinic and Foreclosure Mediation Clinic still have some openings for spring 2017. All applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis (Please note that the Health Advocacy Clinic will not be offered in spring 2017, but will return in future semesters). The spring clinic application and instructions are available as a fillable PDF form at http://law.niu.edu/law/academic/experiential/clinical_program/application_process.shtml. Applications will be submitted through email from the PDF once you have completed the form. You will not be able to enroll in a clinic directly through MyNIU when you register for other classes. If you have additional questions about clinics, please contact a member of the clinical faculty. Reminder: for those matriculating in fall 2015 or later, there is a experiential learning requirement in order to graduate. Legal clinics and for-credit externships meet that requirement.

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