The AUWCL Clinical Program has long been recognized as a leader in the field of clinical education. Through its 11 in-house clinics, the Clinical Program provides a transformative experience for students making the transition from law school to law practice. Our students represent low-income and under-represented clients or groups in litigation, administrative, transactional, and policy matters. Though they receive faculty guidance and extensive feedback, student attorneys are responsible for managing litigation, carrying out transactional work, and engaging in issue-based advocacy. By learning the criteria for good lawyering and practicing regular self-evaluation, student attorneys develop reflective habits that encourage continuous professional growth.
