Clinical Programs

About The Clinical Programs

Among its several missions, the School of Law strives to prepare students to be practicing lawyers. While traditional academic course work provides the foundation for skills training, the School of Law has multiple ways for law students to experience the actual practice of law in supervised settings.

A maximum of 12 credit hours may be gained toward the 88 credits required for graduation.
