Additional Comments

All of the clinics have weekly classes which provide students with training in the types of matter addressed by the clinic, opportunities to discuss cases and projects being handled, and a forum to share experiences.


Students may take clinical courses for a maximum of 10 units by either participating in the same clinic twice or in different clinics.  In a placement clinic, the first time is for four units while the second time is for three units.


Students who have not had a first-time clinic experience have priority over students who have had a clinic experience already.
