Interested in the Law Clinic? Apply!
The Law Clinic is a law firm run by third-year law students who gain practical experience in the courtroom by representing real clients in Jefferson Family and District Courts. From initial intake interview through conclusion of the case, the students are the primary contact with clients for all matters handled by the clinic. Student attorneys represent victims of domestic violence in EPO hearings and tenants in Forcible Detainer (eviction) Court under the supervision of Professor Shelley Santry, director of the Clinic.
Clinic is a four-hour course that is a really great experience. Most clinic students say it is their favorite part of law school. It gives students a chance to actually practice law and it looks huge on a resume!
If you are interested in participating in the Law Clinic next semester, send a resume and short statement of interest to Professor Santry at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions should be directed to her as well.
Students must have completed 60 hours by the end of this semester to qualify for a limited license to practice law under Supreme Court Rule 2.540.
