Clinic Prerequisites

Successful completion of all first year classes is required for all clinics and field placement opportunities. Once appropriate prerequisite courses 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. However, students may only enroll in the same clinic one time. They may enroll in a different clinic as long as they do not exceed the 18 credit cap.
