    Why join a clinic?

    The Fredric G. Levin College of Law Clinics are faculty-supervised, advice, representation, and mediation clinics that integrate the college’s nationally-ranked scholarship with applied lawyering, mediation, and problem-solving skills developed through simulation courses and by legal services provided in a fully-operational legal aid clinic.
