Experiential Learning

Skills-Based Learning – Real Life Lawyering


Temple University Beasley School of Law offers a broad range of experiential programs for every law student, no matter what your area of interest. Our experiential offerings start in your first semester of law school, and you can continue to enroll in different experiential courses until you graduate. We recommend that you carefully sequence the experiential options you select, from intensive in-house clinics to individually designed practicums. Because the choices available to you can be complex, we strongly encourage you to seek our advice when choosing your experiential courses. Temple Law faculty and administrators are committed to helping you design an experiential palette tailored to your needs. My door is always open, and my colleagues are equally excited to offer you tailored guidance on our programs.

Real Clients & Projects with Impact

Work on real-world problems with lawyers representing clients or pursuing advocacy projects that directly impact individuals and communities.
