210 clinical hours (minimum), approximately 16 hours

receive a letter grade.
Clinician Experience

HANDS-ON PRACTICAL LEGAL EXPERIENCE

Clinicians practice under the supervision of a licensed attorney
pursuant to Michigan Student Practice Court Rule 8.120.

Clinician experience combines traditional classroom instruction
with ‘experiential’ learning opportunities.


In collaboration with the State Appellate Defenders Office
(“SADO”), Clinicians provide legal assistants to indigent inmates
within county jails or the Michigan Dept of Corrections as to
appellate risks and options; investigate case facts, draft motions,
briefs, legal memoranda for court filing; and students will be
included in court hearings to the extent possible.
Clinicians develop practical lawyering skills in problem solving,
law office management, and client representation (prepare a plea
unit pleading and/or present a formal oral argument).
Application Process


Interested students will be required to
complete an application during the
semester prior to the one in which they
wish to attend.
Selected applicants will be notified prior to
registration.
