Be The Lawyer!

Clinic recruitment is coming! Each year, we wage a wide-scale education campaign to help students understand what the Clinical Program is, how it can promote their educational and professional goals, and how the application process works.  Here are the highlights.

  • On Monday, February 20th, we’re having a general information session at 4:00 in Room 602.  We’ll have information tables afterward for the eleven clinics that comprise the program, so you can circulate and ask questions.
  • On Thursday, February 23rd, we’re having a luncheon co-sponsored by the Office of Diversity Services.  This is a chance for prospective clinic applicants to speak to current clinic students from a variety of backgrounds to find out what the program is really like.  Though faculty will show up at the beginning to say hello, they won’t stay for the event, so everyone can feel free to be candid with their questions and answers.  Please RSVP if you’d like to attend.
  • Over the next 3 weeks, there will be numerous clinic-specific small information sessions so that you can get more details about the programs that particularly interest you.  Note that applicants are REQUIRED to have attended at least one of these information sessions.  You’ll be able to see the final schedule here.
  • The application will be available on our website on Monday.
  • The application DEADLINE is Friday, March 9th, at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
  • We will announce clinic selections by e-mail as early in April as possible.

Bottom line, there are many opportunities for students to learn about the program and determine which clinics interest them.

Other sources of information include our website, which contains a series of FAQs about the program. We also maintain feeds on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook and, of course, this blog.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!
