Today's employers are looking for candidates who excel in both legal theory and practice. More and more, they want to hire graduates who have already worked for legal practitioners on actual cases and have experienced firsthand the inner workings of the legal system.
Wayne Law's clinics are directed by expert faculty and experienced practitioners, who help students bridge the gap between theory and practice. Located on or close to campus and offered for credit, our clinics provide hands-on casework to law students while simultaneously assisting residents of the metro Detroit community.
Wayne Law offers eight client clinics:
- Appeal and Post-Conviction Advocacy Clinic

- Disability Law Clinic
