Registration & Requirements

Registration for the Civil Legal Assistance Clinic is limited to third-year students. A lottery registration meeting for Externship and Clinical Programs is held approximately one month into the spring semester of your 2nd year. Notices are posted throughout the Law School and emailed to the 2nd year student listserv. After the lottery registration meeting, students are given an opportunity to register for their program preferences online.

Please note: Students may not enroll in any externship programs while enrolled in the Civil Clinic.

Registration Requirements include:

  • Civil Legal Assistance Clinic -- Year-long, 4 credits each semester, pass/fail.
