Animal Law Clinic Student Information

The Animal Law Clinic is a year-long course for which students will earn 6 credits. Students will participate in a weekly 2-hour class covering substantive issues and lawyering skills; meet weekly with the clinic faculty to discuss their work; and spend an average of 8 - 10 hours per week on clinic work. The Animal Law Clinic is a credit/no credit course with no final examination or paper requirement.

While the clinic will not include a separate ethics portion for credit, students will be exposed to, and will learn about professionalism and ethics, which is critical to being an effective legal advocate. Students are encouraged to obtain certification, but it is not required.
