Clinical Education Program
Clinical Education Program Students - Fall Semester 2013
Welcome to the Clinical Education Program. The main areas of focus in the Law Clinic are Housing and Employment law.
In our program, UND law students develop fundamental lawyering skills and values by engaging in legal advocacy on behalf of persons who otherwise would be unable to obtain legal representation. These experiences lead to marketable skills that can assist students in their post-law school job search.
Clinical Education students contribute to improving access to justice by providing lower income persons with the means to enforce existing legal rights and by promoting community-wide understanding of the laws protecting the rights of tenants and employees. Consistent with the law school’s mission, the Law Clinic course integrates opportunities to teach students the habit of reflection, the value of collaboration, and the importance of professional responsibility in the context of litigation and legal advocacy.
