Clinical Programs

Southwestern’s legal clinics offer students multiple opportunities to gain practical lawyering skills while providing quality legal representation to under-represented individuals and organizations.  

By participating in a clinic, students work directly with and in the community.  Clinic students work on real cases for academic credit under the close supervision and guidance of faculty who are practicing attorneys. The students take on responsibility for the strategy and execution of an array of legal matters and often are involved in cases from beginning to end.  Students develop as professionals and learn first-hand the importance of access to justice.
