Overview

Experience will shape your education from the very beginning. Our experiential learning opportunities provide a number of options to put legal theory and doctrine into action through simulation courses, legal clinics, and field placements.

From simulation courses that teach the lawyering skills you'll use as a practicing attorney and put them into practice using hypothetical cases in the classroom and our mock courtrooms. To immersion programs where you can spend a semester working in real-world live-client jobs to hone your skills. You will have opportunities to get practical experience before you graduate.

Legal Clinics

Legal clinics provide an opportunity to hone your craft, working directly to advise or represent real clients under the supervision of a faculty member. Participation in a clinic takes place in conjunction with other traditional academic courses.

Intellectual Property Law Clinic

You will bridge the gap between your doctrinal courses and real-world intellectual property law practice while assisting individual entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits with the clearance, protection, and management of copyright, trademark, and related intellectual property rights.

Medical-Legal Partnership Clinic

You will attain fundamental lawyering skills through direct client representation and advocacy, collaborating with healthcare providers to identify legal issues that negatively contribute to the health of low-income patient-clients and develop a comprehensive, interprofessional strategy to overcome barriers to health justice.
