LAW 2751 - Clinic Practicum


The Clinic Practicum provides an opportunity for students who have taken the Child Advocacy Clinic, Criminal Justice Clinic, Housing Rights Clinic, Mediation Clinic or Political Asylum Clinic to continue to work on Clinic cases that carry over to a second semester, and to receive advanced training in the advocacy skills, professional responsibility obligations, and case strategy analysis required in client representation. Students advocate on behalf of the clients who they represented when they were enrolled in one of the Clinics, and may also be assigned to other cases that raise particularly complex issues of fact and law. Students are required to attend weekly supervision meetings that focus on strategic decision-making considerations, and each student must make at least one major presentation on a practice or professional responsibility issue drawn from one of his or her cases. Students are eligible for the Clinic Practicum only if they meet one or more of the following criteria: the student’s carry-over cases involve complex legal or factual issues which require more sophistication than would normally be expected of a one-semester student; the student’s carry-over cases involve upcoming trials or other significant court hearings; the student’s carry-over cases involve law-re f o rm related issues; the student has established a positive relationship with one or more of the significant professionals involved in the case that would be difficult for another student to emulate effectively; or, the student has established a positive relationship with his or her client that would be difficult for another student to emulate effectively.
