"It's one thing to learn the law to take an exam. It's another to use the law to interview, counsel and represent real clients. Clinical legal education integrates theory and practice. Our clinics give students hands-on experience, requiring them to formulate goals, explore options, plan strategy and make decisions with limited time and, often, incomplete information. The decisions our students make have real consequences for real clients."
