Clinics

In clinics, KU Law students take the lead on real cases with real clients, honing practice skills while providing quality legal representation to underserved individuals and communities. Clinical offices are housed in the law school, and full-time KU Law faculty and staff attorneys supervise the work of student advocates. Each clinic also includes a classroom component taught by a KU Law faculty member.
