Registration Open for Summer and Fall 2017 Clinics

Fall 2017 Clinic Applications

The Clinical Law Program is now accepting applications for Fall 2017 Clinics. Information about the Civil Justice Clinic, the Criminal Defense Clinic, the Health Advocacy Clinic and the Foreclosure Mediation Clinic can be found at the Student Application Page online. You can go directly to the Fall 2017 Clinic Application to apply for the Fall term. 

The deadline for Fall 2017 Clinic Applications is 
Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. 

Due to the experiential learning requirement for the 3L class, we strongly encourage students interested in a Fall clinic to apply by the deadline. All clinic applications completed and submitted by the deadline will be reviewed at the same time after the deadline to determine clinic registration for the Fall. 

To apply for a fall clinic, you must fill out and submit the Fall 2017 Clinic Application online. There is no paper application form. Please note that the applications are different for Summer 2017 and Fall 2017.

Your clinical professor will inform you about your clinic registration after the applications are reviewed. 

All students admitted to a Fall 2017 Clinic will be required to attend the full-day Clinic Orientation on Friday, August 11, 2017.
