Clinic students provide legal services directly or work closely with faculty members on complex cases. They represent clients during the preparation, trial, and appeal of cases in litigation or in law-related transactions and projects. Each clinic consists of a classroom component and a casework component. Student work is closely supervised by the clinical faculty. All clinics are graded on a pass/fail basis, and there is no final paper or examination. For more information about clinics please click here.
