About the Clinical Law Program

UW Law provides students with real-world legal experience assisting clients and communities. Building on foundational lawyering skills learned in the first year, students work on real cases, transactions or projects for academic credit supervised by experienced faculty members.

Clinic students may advocate for clients in litigation, negotiate or mediate disputes, advise entrepreneurs and companies, develop policy by drafting legislation and getting it enacted, comment on regulations or gather information, and write reports for legislative bodies.

COVID-19 Clinical Program Guidelines for Operations

On March 18, 2020, UW President Ana Mari Cauce announced that spring quarter will begin as scheduled on March 30, with remote instruction that will continue through the end of the quarter. As country-wide social distancing requirements continue to increase and evolve daily, the University believes this is the best course of action for reducing uncertainty and anxiety and establishing a reliable, high-quality method of instruction and academic progress for UW students through the spring. Our clinics will continue to serve clients with students’ support in compliance with public health guidance for social distancing and good hygiene.
