Community Development Law Clinic

Registration & Requirements

Registration for the Community Development Law 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 Community Development Law Clinic.

Requirements. Students meet weekly at a regularly scheduled class time to exchange information on their matters and to focus on lawyering skills such as client interviewing, counseling and document drafting. Students also attend weekly meetings with their faculty supervisor.

Students receive 3 credits (pass/fail) for the fall semester and 3 credits (pass/fail) for the spring.

Pre- or Co-requisites. All students must have either taken The Law of Nonprofit Organizations in their second year or be enrolled in Nonprofit Organizations in the fall of their third year. There are no other requirements, but Business Associations is recommended.
