For more than 70 years, we've been home to the oldest legal clinic program in the country.

In a clinical course at the College of Law Legal Clinic, students find opportunities to build an experiential bridge between law school and practice by representing real clients facing real legal issues.

Students operate as practitioners in a public interest law firm and are immersed in all facets of their case and project work, collaborating closely with clinical faculty to ensure proper and complete representation. The curriculum allows students time for critical review and reflection as they evaluate their own work and the legal work of their classmates.

Students deepen their legal knowledge, strengthen their lawyering skills, and grow their professional experience through our legal clinics. Our clinical faculty guide, mentor, and challenge students and while also assisting them in gaining expertise in clinical scholarship.

As a national leader in clinical education, the UT Legal Clinic ranks 9th in U.S. News and World Report’s top legal clinical programs among public universities and is 20th among all U.S. law schools.
