Information for Students
Second- and third-year students obtain practical training through the Law School’s clinical and experiential programs, in which students represent clients and engage in other lawyering roles under the supervision of full time clinical teachers, faculty, and practicing attorneys. The Law School’s clinical and experiential programs give students an opportunity to learn litigation, legislative advocacy, and transactional skills. Students learn through classroom instruction, simulation, and representation of clients under the close supervision of the clinical teachers and attorneys. The program is intended to join the academic study of law with experience in interviewing clients, investigating facts, developing strategies, conducting negotiations, dealing with adverse parties, drafting legislation and lobbying legislators, drafting contracts, and participating in court proceedings.
For information on any particular clinic you can contact a member of the clinic student board: Ethel Amponsah, Ruby Garrett, Clara Kim, Joel Kim, Keiko Rose or Andrew Sullivan.

Each summer, the Clinics hire a number of students. Students selected for the summer program will be assigned to one Clinic/Project for the summer and will work on a variety of cases and other matters.
