Policies and Guidelines
As new student attorneys you will be asked to abide by all of the ethical rules that would apply as if you were a practicing lawyer. We know that some of you will be working while also taking the clinic. While we generally discourage this given the intensive time commitment of the clinic, we are aware that some of you will work.
If you are working, we will need to disclose your clinic work to your employer and they will need to do a conflict check. If a conflict arises, there is a presumption that the conflict will be resolved to the benefit of the clinic client. Thus, there is a risk that you may have to withdraw from the clinic.
