Hands-On Learning

"I believe I got excellent experience very early in my law school career working with the Veterans Advocacy Clinic. There's nothing that demonstrates the power of legal education than to help a real client resolve a life crisis." - Matt Randle, Class of 2014

Your law school experience should extend far beyond the lecture hall. At Arizona Law, students have numerous and varied opportunities to put theory into practice. In addition to a wide array of clinics operated by Arizona Law, our community partners, and our student organizations, we also weave meaningful experiences throughout the curriculum.

Many of our classes involve simulated or "real world'" experiences, and a wide variety of trial advocacy, negotiation, mediation, and interviewing courses help students apply their knowledge. We also offer a number of applied learning opportunities, including externships, clerkships, workshops, seminars, and ad hoc placements.

Our students are mentored by nationally respected clinical faculty and experienced practicing lawyers.

Every Arizona Law student who wants to participate in a clinic is able to. In fact, almost all students have worked in multiple clinic, internship/externship, or law-related volunteer placements by the time they graduate.
