    Benefits of Clinics and Field Placements

    The Fredric G. Levin College of Law Clinics and Field Placements 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 providing legal services in the state attorney’s office, public defender’s office, or a fully-operational law clinic.
