Supreme Court Clinic

Students in the Supreme Court Clinic work closely with faculty members on cases before the United States Supreme Court. Students assist in representing clients who are seeking review of lower court decisions or who have cases before the Supreme Court following grants of certiorari. Students conduct in-depth research and draft briefs such as petitions for certiorari, briefs in opposition, reply briefs, amicus briefs, and merits briefs. Through introductory classes and casework, students gain firsthand knowledge of Supreme Court procedures and practice.


I’m not aware of any other clinic, course, or internship that allows law students to get this kind (and caliber) of appellate experience.
