Every Fall and Spring semester the Student Law Office hosts the Clinical Recruitment Fair. In an informal setting in the forum, the fair provides a platform for law students to talk to the clinic faculty, staff and current clinical students about the clinic’s offerings. The Student Information Session is a lunchtime gathering held in a classroom. The clinic faculty talk about their clinical offerings and what the students can expect if they participate in a particular clinic. Students have the opportunity to ask the faculty questions during the session. Within a few days of the recruitment fair and information session, the on-line clinical application process starts. Students have one week to apply to the clinical programs. Students can apply to two clinics, one first choice option and then one second choice option. The applications can be accessed by clicking on the link below.
Note: Registration for the Civil Rights Clinic, the Environmental Clinic, and the Community Economic Development Clinic occur only in the Spring of each year, for the following Fall, as they are year-long clinics. The Criminal Defense and Civil Litigation Clinics are semester-long clinics.
