Submit Applications Online
Registration for clinics is by application and permission only. All applications should be submitted using the Clinic Application and Matching System (CAMS). An NYU NetID and a Law School-issued password are required to access the system. Once you log in, you will be able to upload the general application form, resume and unofficial transcript required by all clinics. Some clinics may request additional materials to supplement the basic application; these should also be submitted online via CAMS. The JD application deadline for all clinics - whether year-long, Fall semester, or Spring semester - is Friday, April 5, 2013, at 5:00 PM. (The sole exception is the newly-created Legislative and Regulatory Process Clinic, whose deadline is February 15, 2013.)
Maximum number of clinic applications
You may apply for a maximum of six clinics -- i.e., any combination of year-long and/or semester-long clinics. This is a change from previous years. You may apply for one or both semesters of a given one-semester clinic, but each semester counts separately toward the maximum.
Pre- and Co-Requisites
Please ascertain whether you have fulfilled the requirements for a particular clinic before submitting your application. If you have questions regarding any of the requirements, please direct them to the relevant clinical faculty.
Not all clinics conduct interviews. Check clinic descriptions for details. If conducted, interviews will take place from Monday, March 25 through Thursday, April 25, 2013.
Indicate Your Preferences for Clinic Matching
Once you complete the application process -- including any necessary interviews -- you must decide the order of your preferences among the clinics to which you applied, and communicate those choices to us through the Clinic Application and Matching System (CAMS). You may apply for one or both semesters of a given one-semester clinic, but each semester should be indicated as a separate preference. If you are applying to only one clinic, you must affirmatively indicate on CAMS that it is your first choice in order for us perform the clinic matching. The deadline for submitting your preferences for the clinic matching is Friday, April 26, 2013, at 5:00 p.m.
