Clinic Registration

Registration for the Clinical Program is a separate process from registration for your other courses.  Registration for the Spring 2024 semester ended on Friday, October 6th. Registration for the Fall 2024 semester will take place in the spring.

To learn more about the Clinics and their registration process, please view the Clinic Program Information session which was held on September 25, 2023. 

The Caritas Clemency Clinic is a full year experience so applications and registrations are not accepted for the Spring semester.

Applications for the Clinic for Asylum, Refugee & Emigrant Services (CARES), and the Clinic for Law and Entrepreneurship (CFLE), and Intellectual Property Clinic also require a separate application form.

For the Asylum, Clemency, and Entrepreneurship Clinics, student must have applied for enrollment and registered. Students will be selected based on their applications. Students who apply but did not register will not be accepted into the Clinic. All other clinic enrollment is done by lottery.

You will be notified if you are accepted into a Clinic before you complete registration for your other classes.

We cannot guarantee that every student will be enrolled in a clinic. Preference is given to 3L students, although we regularly enroll 2L students. For clinics with prerequisite courses, 2Ls may only enroll in the spring semester if they have completed their prerequisites. The Tax Clinic does enroll 2L students in the Fall semester.

Please read through the course descriptions for more information and contact Caitlin Barry with any additional questions:
