Real-client experience is a critical part of your legal education. So critical that we guarantee that every student wanting a clinic placement can have one.
In our clinics, students work under the supervision of faculty attorneys and veteran practitioners on:
- actual cases
- public policy initiatives
- community outreach and education
- other projects with significant client impact
Additional clinical opportunities are offered by community partners and student-run clinics.
At University of Arizona Law, we infuse practical training into everything we do. Our clinics are a core element of ensuring you graduate fully prepared to practice law and seek justice for your clients.
