Clinical ProgramsThe College of Law is committed to educating tomorrow's  leaders by providing our students with the best legal education.   Such a legal education includes clinical programs that provide students with the opportunity to learn professional skills and values by working in the real world with clients, attorneys, judges, and legislators. Through our in-house clinics, law students assist needy clients with domestic violence, child advocacy, immigration and tribal law issues.  We also offer clinical placements that allow our students to work with attorneys and judges on criminal defense and criminal prosecution cases.

Clinical courses are demanding, rigorous, and exhilarating because they provide students with real life situations that require problem solving, judgment, advocacy, communication, collaboration, ethics, and the relationship between law, facts, and evidence.  We hope to assure that any student interested in pursing a clinical or skills experience during law school has the opportunity to do so with adequate professional support and resources.

Clinical courses are expensive for the College to offer due to the low faculty : student ratio required to provide hands-on oversight of the students as they handle real-life, pro bono cases.  That is why gifts to the clinical programs fund, such as that made recently by Roxana Bacon and Diane Dear (Friends of the College of Law), are so critical to the College’s ability to continue to offer these unique clinical opportunities to our students.

Please consider becoming a Pillar of the Clinics by contributing $250 to the clinical program fund.  All contributing to this effort are entitled to a hand-painted tile with their name displayed on the tile.  The tiles will cover the cement pillars at the entrance to the building, Rogers Rountree Hall, which houses our clinics.  By being part of this effort, you will help support the work of the clinics as well as beautify the law school facilities.
