LAW 390 Law Clinic

Integrates the classroom experience with practice as a paralegal. Clinic legal studies students participate in a wide range of clinical activities under the close and supportive supervision of a faculty attorney. Students learn what it means to be a paralegal by working with the economically disadvantaged and under-represented persons in the community and by analyzing this experience. While working with clients in various areas of law (such as tax law, family law, and bankruptcy law), students will explore a substantive area of law and its processes. Issues of professional responsibility are also considered. Students will meet periodically with other clinic students and the faculty attorney to discuss the area of substantive law, the paralegal skills they developed, and any ethical issues they encountered. This course may be repeated one time for credit.
