Hands-on Learning

At Arizona Law, our classroom extends far beyond the lecture hall. We offer students a wide variety of hands-on opportunities to take book learning and put it to use in the real world. Building on what happens in traditional classes and seminars, these hands-on opportunities allow our students to learn by doing. Supervised by faculty or other lawyers, they interview, counsel, and represent clients, appear in court, assist judges in state, federal, and tribal courts, work in corporate law departments, and work with state and federal legislators.


We offer a wide range of renowned clinics - but we go further to integrate experiential learning beyond the traditional law school clinic, throughout the curriculum. We offer a number of applied learning opportunities, including externships, clerkships, workshops, seminars, and ad hoc placements.


At Arizona Law, students learn from the best in the field - from our nationally respected clinical faculty to Professor Jean Braucher (Mortgage Clinic), a leading bankruptcy scholar; Professor Tom Mauet (Trial Advocacy) - who literally "wrote the book" on how to try cases; and Professor S. James Anaya (Human Rights Workshops), who currently serves as the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous People.
