Summer and Fall Clinical Law Program Information Meeting Monday, April 3rd

The clinical faculty and students will be holding a clinic information meeting on Monday, April 3rd at Noon in Room 150. This summer and fall as part of the COL’s experiential learning program, we will offer four clinics: the Civil Justice Clinic, the Criminal Defense Clinic, the Health Advocacy Clinic and the Foreclosure Mediation Clinic. These clinics provide 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 2017. Lunch will be provided.

Summer clinic applications will be due Monday, April 10th. Fall clinic applications will be due after fall registration opens later in the semester.

Reminder: Students matriculating at the College of Law beginning in Fall 2015 are required to complete a clinic or externship to graduate.

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