Denver Law has a long-standing commitment to making students “practice ready.” We offer a number of nationally recognized programs to prepare our students. Our Clinical Program
offers 6 different opportunities for students to work closely with faculty and represent clients together. Our Legal Externship Program
, with over 400 placements available to students, is one of the largest of its kind in the country. Both offer countless opportunities to gain experience working on real cases for real clients. From advocating for prisoners’ rights in the clinic to working for the IRS
or the ACLU
as part of an externship, students gain critical insights into the work of a lawyer in the public sector.
Our Lawyering Process Program for 1Ls, Advocacy Program, and simulation and Capstone courses also provide students with the ability to hone much-needed skills. And now, through the Experiential Advantage™ curriculum, students can opt to spend at least a third of their three-year law school career exploring these experiential options.
With all of these opportunities, Denver Law students graduate ready to practice in the public sector.
