- How can I find out more information about clinicals?
- How do I register for a clinical?
External Clinics and Externships are available for Priority Registration through Banner. Internal Clinics, listed below, have a separate application process:
- Federal Judicial Clerkship (Selection Procedure [PDF], Application [PDF])
- State Judicial Clerkship
- Community Lawyering Clinic (Professor Spencer Rand)
- Elderly Law Project (Professor Debra Kroll)
- Family law Litigation Clinic (Professor Sarah Katz)
- Justice Lab (Sheller Center) (Professor Colleen Shanahan)
- Social Justice Lawyering (Sheller Center)
- Who can register for clinicals through Banner?
Third year full-time students (3Ls) and fourth and third year part-time students (4LEs and 3LEs) can register for clinicals through Self Service Banner (SSB). Second year full-time and part-time students (2Ls and 2LEs) cannot register online for clinicals. 2Ls interested in clinicals must contact Professor Jen Bretschneider to be registered in a clinical.
- Are there enough spaces in clinicals for everyone?
We want to ensure that 4LE, 3L, and 3LE students are able to take at least one clinical during the academic year. Accordingly, the Priority Registration process will allow you not only to register in a clinical for Fall, but also to pre-register for a clinical in Spring.
- For clinicals available for registration through Banner, when will Priority Registration take place?
Priority Registration on Self Services Banner (SSB) for External Clinics and Externships will take place during the last week of March. This is before registration for your other courses, which will begin during the first week in April. 4LEs, 3Ls, and 3Ls will be able to register first in one clinical – either for Fall or Spring – and if they choose, in a second clinical.
- Are there prerequisites for clinicals, and how do I know when I have to be at my clinical?
Most clinicals have prerequisites. Before you register for a clinical, check the online course schedule to make sure that you understand any prerequisites it may have and its time requirements. Self Service Banner (SSB) will check that you have taken the prerequisites and will prevent you from registering if you do not have them. SSB will not check your clinical meeting times against the meeting times of the other courses you will be registering for. It is entirely up to you to keep the meeting times of your clinical in mind as you register for your other courses.
