Students may not be registered in a clinic without first applying for and being accepted into it by the instructor. The application process for LLM students opens on July 1, 2013 and the deadline for submission of applications is July 15, 2013. Please consult the individual clinic descriptions for application procedures (click on links below). Additional clinic opportunities will be posted later in the spring.
