Apply to the Clinics

Applications for Spring 2021 are now due by noon on Monday, November 2. (The deadline was extended by one week.)

All clinics accept applications from 2Ls and 3Ls, and one clinic (Environmental Law Clinic) will accept applications from 1Ls. 

Please note that the Death Penalty Clinic and the Policy Advocacy Clinic will not be accepting applications for the spring semester.

Students can apply to the Clinical Program twice a year:

  • Apply in mid-October for the spring semester
  • Apply in mid-April for the fall semester 

Please note that students may not simultaneously enroll in two clinics nor simultaneously enroll in a clinic and field placement internship or externship.

The Clinical Program application process is highly competitive. Clinics receive applications from rising/current 2Ls, rising/current 3Ls, LL.M., and graduate students, and clinical faculty choose the students they feel are best qualified from this large pool of applicants.
