Law Clerk Field Training
Students find and complete an 84-hour field placement in a legal environment. Students apply the knowledge and skills gained in the classroom to practical settings such as law firms, corporations and courts. Students work independently, and as part of a team, to assist legal professionals with client matters, in a professional and ethical manner. Through employer and self-evaluation, students identify areas for improvement and possible future career paths. All placements must be approved by the Field Placement Coordinator.
