Your clinical semester brings the study of law to life.
Clinical education is an important part of the NSU College of Law experience. In fact, we think clinical education is so important that each and every student who meets the clinic and field placement criteria and pre-requisite classes has the opportunity to participate in one of our clinics or field placements during their final year of law school.
Each opportunity is unique.
Students receive quality training from experienced professors, practitioners and distinguished guest lecturers on campus. Students participate in individualized internships and externships where they receive in-depth, "hands on" experience in the field and one-on-one mentoring from a supervising attorney.
NSU College of Law offers excellent internship opportunities available in our in-house clinics directed by award winning faculty members. Part-time students may also enjoy the benefits of the clinical experience because we have developed a dynamic clinical program with their demanding schedules in mind.
Once appropriate pre-requisite classes have been satisfied, students who wish to take more than one clinic or field placement semester may do so as long as they do not exceed a total of 18 credits of clinic or field placement during their legal education.
