LAW 9610 - Clinic

Clinic courses give students the opportunity to develop valuable litigation, transactional, and alternative dispute resolution skills through hands‑on experience representing actual clients under the Minnesota Certified Student Practice Rule. Through this experience, students will apply essential lawyering skills, encounter ethical issues, and see and experience how law works in society from the point of view of low‑income clients. Students will work in collaboration with other clinic students, receiving individualized feedback from faculty supervisors, and develop the life‑long habit of self‑reflective lawyering. Clinic students are supervised by in‑house attorneys or adjunct faculty members who are experienced practitioners, and clinic cases and projects are chosen to maximize student interaction with clients and foster student control and responsibility for every aspect of representation.

Students are required to prepare for, attend, and participate in a classroom component that meets two hours each week and to complete 70 hours of case work.

Professional Responsibility is a prerequisite or concurrent requirement for all clinics.
