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.

Washington Supreme Court Justice Mary Yu presided over the annual Swearing-in Ceremony for UW Law's Clinical Law Program at William H. Gates Hall on Friday, Oct. 14.
