Pop-Up Practicums are short-term practical legal work in an area that’s meaningful to you. Sometimes faculty initiate these practicums in areas of their research, but you may also propose practicums in other areas. Recent pop-up practicums have involved bail reform, civilian oversight of police, criminal rules amendments, mental health courts, domestic violence policy reform, regulatory compliance for a proposed wind farm, and assisting a client seeking release on parole.
Under the close supervision of experienced attorneys, you will put what you learn in the classroom to work in the service of real clients with real legal problems. Whether or not you intend to practice public interest law, the clinics allow you to participate in a case from intake to resolution with full mentoring by clinic professors.
Students participate in clinics after completing the required coursework, usually in the third or fourth year of the part-time program. Some clinics are available in the evenings or on weekends and can be completed through remote participation.
You can choose from six clinics as well as pro bono work and Pop-Up Practicums.
- Appellate Practice Clinic
- Civil Litigation Clinic

- Pardon, Clemency and Expungement Clinic
