LAW 7401 - Family Law and Housing Clinic I

4 Semester Credit Hours
Upon application, 8 students will be invited to work in the Family Law and Housing Clinic. Students will apply their legal education to all aspects of family law and housing law representation, including investigation, interviewing clients and witnesses, legal research, legal writing, negotiations, and all courtroom trial skills. Under close supervision, as qualified law students holding a third-year bar card, the students will represent clients throughout all of the legal process. The classroom component will continue the student’s study of Family Law and Housing Law and will focus on skills development, ethics, and case strategy in real on-going criminal matters. This clinic requires a commitment of 220 hours per semester, which will return a unique, experiential opportunity for third-year students in completing their legal education and preparing them for the real world.
