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 the appropriate number of credits of clinic or field placement during their legal education. There are only two semesters that a student can be enrolled in the same clinic, regardless of credits taken each time. They may enroll in a different clinic for a third semester as long as pre-requisite courses have been satisfied. Please carefully review THIS INFORMATION.
