With goals of advocacy and teaching, clinical faculty construct curricula and courses to balance the training of law students in the skills, techniques, and professional habits necessary for the practice of law with the responsible, ethical representation of clients often in need of a broad array of services.
As a proven method of teaching law, clinical scholarship places case book theory within the context of counseling and representing real clients working towards resolution of real legal problems. This practical experience for students not only contributes to a better understanding of the law learned in the classroom, it gives many of our graduates the advantage of Florida Supreme Court certification as Certified Legal Interns.
Law students earn academic credit for the one or two semesters they study and work under the supervision of faculty who are Florida Bar members-in-good standing.
