Requirements/Application Procedures and Forms
Enrollment in the Clinics is by application only. The application link can be found below and is sent out to students via e-mail before the end of each semester. No student will be permitted to enroll in more than one Clinic at the same time. However, because we cannot assure that you will be accepted into your first choice, you are encouraged to apply for two or more Clinics. To apply for any of the Clinics, you must submit a signed application. Some Clinics require supplementary information and/or interviews.
By submitting this application, you are authorizing the Registrar's office to release your law school transcript to the Director of the Clinic and the faculty member teaching the course. Any questions regarding the Clinics should be addressed to Melina A. Healey, Director of Clinical Programs. You may also consult your faculty advisor or the professor teaching the clinic.
5-credit clinics seminars in the day division are usually scheduled between 3:35 pm and 6:15 pm on either Monday or Tuesday. 3-credit evening clinic seminars (which give priority to evening and flextime students) are usually scheduled between 6:30 pm and 8:20 pm on Tuesdays.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
The list of accepted students will be sent by email to students in advance of registration. Applications submitted after the deadline will be considered only at the discretion of the Director of the individual clinic. Once notified of acceptance each student must contact Susan Kanner at the clinic office at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm acceptance. If you do not confirm acceptance your place may be given to another student.
The Registrar will receive a list of the accepted students and will automatically enroll students in their clinic placement.
Clinics Selection Criteria
All students who will have completed credits equivalent to one year of full-time law study (29 credits), may apply for the Clinics. Factors relevant to selection for admission into the Clinics include:
1. Student seniority (this factor is given significant priority);
2. First-time Clinic enrollees are given priority over those who have previously enrolled in a clinic;
3. Evening and Flextime students are given priority in the 3-credit clinics; and
4. Completion of relevant pre-requisite courses, interviews, and other clinic-specific screening criteria.
While there is no minimum grade point average for enrollment in the Clinics, a student on academic probation will not be eligible to enroll in a Clinic, absent extraordinary circumstances.
