There will be a two-day orientation before classes start and a weekly, mandatory seminar to discuss overarching themes of social justice lawyering and prepare students to appear in court. Students are fully responsible for all aspects of each case and will have regular meetings with faculty and staff to review case work and discuss litigation strategies. Students are expected to think deeply about the universe of the client’s problems and goals, not just the particular proceeding at hand. The Clinic aims to teach students to be skilled, self-reflective lawyers equipped to litigate and counsel in various fields with an understanding and appreciation for justice lawyering and how to effectuate change in the legal system.
The Clinic is graded (6 credits). Because students will devote 300 hours, approximately 20 hours a week to work at the Clinic, you are not permitted to take another clinic at the same time and should plan to limit outside employment.
