Georgetown University Law Center Clinics
Clinics combine classroom theory with actual legal practice. Law students will represent actual clients and be responsible for all the legal work performed, including research and investigation, case planning, client representation and pleading the client's case in court. Clinics cover several areas such as women's rights, domestic violence, juvenile justice, prisoner advocacy, federal legislation and more.
The clinics are for experience and are funded by college tuitions. Students gain real-life experience and also provide a public service for clients who might not otherwise be able to obtain legal representation. The work of law students in the clinics are supervised by experienced lawyers and teachers. Student lawyers may represent clients in court, or before administrative tribunals.
The clinics are designed to prepare law students for a career in law by teaching them how to plan cases, solve problems, foster good client relations, and perform other activities associated with the practice of law.
The location is usually in DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
