Experiential Learning Clinics Put yourself in the driver's seat Hamline Law’s clinics are dedicated to putting you in leading roles as certified student attorneys. Clinic cases are chosen to maximize your interaction with clients and foster your control and responsibility for every aspect of representation. Because clinics are taught in classes with student-teacher ratios of no more than 8-1, you receive supervision and ongoing feedback from clinic professors who are both experienced practitioners and gifted mentors. Best of all, because of the number of clinic opportunities we offer, you can take advantage of the clinics most beneficial to your future. As a clinic student, you complete 70 hours of case work and participate in a two-hour weekly classroom component teaching the law and procedure in the clinic practice area, honing essential lawyering skills, exploring public policy issues, and encouraging you to reflect on your experiences. You draw on everything you have learned in law school -- substantive legal knowledge, lawyering skills, and ethics -- and integrate and apply those skills to complex real-world problems. Clinic offerings Hamline Law typically offers the following clinics (see Symplicity job posting #15352 for fall 2015 clinic offerings): Business Law Clinic Child Protection Clinic Child Advocacy Clinic Community Development Clinic Criminal Defense Clinic Employment Discrimination Mediation Representation Clinic Health Law Clinic Immigration Clinic Indian Law Impact Litigation Clinic Indian Law Tribal Code Drafting Clinic Innocence Clinic Intellectual Property Clinic Law & Psychiatry Clinic Legal Assistance to Minnesota Prisoners (LAMP) Clinic Legal Planning for Tax-Exempt Organizations and Low-Income Clients Clinic Mediation Clinic Postconviction Clinic Re-Entry Clinic Application Process Clinic Application Deadline: April 20, 2015.
