Legal Clinics at DePaul

Legal Clinics allow law students to practice law with actual clients facing real legal issues. After the student’s first year in law school learning the theory of the law, Legal Clinics enable law students to hone their lawyering skills through actual legal practice as a second or third year law student. The law school offers a number of Legal Clinics in different practice areas so students can build their practice skills in a particular practice area while also building practice experience on their resume. The law school offers In-House Clinics and Field Clinics.
