CHOOSING A CLINIC

IT'S TIME TO TAKE IT to the next level. The real cases and matters you work on in the clinic will challenge you with their complexity, variety and depth. With 14 practice areas to choose from, Fordham Law’s Clinical program offers a wealth of options to gain essential lawyering skills. Each of the clinical offerings will provide you with an opportunity to develop professional judgment and legal skills in a real practice setting.


You can approach choosing a clinic in three different ways:
Develop Valuable, Transferrable Skills
Learn the skills of drafting pleadings, appearing in court, interacting with clients, and developing personal judgment which will enhance your resume.

Provide Legal Service to the Community
Impact litgation, work with individual clients, and reform legislative law as you advocate for the community.

Explore an Area of New Interest
Are you destined for corporate practice? Why not try litigation? If you're intrigued by criminal law, but have done no work in that area, then test the depth of your interest.

WHATEVER YOUR CHOICE, the Clinic's emphasis on the educational development of each student will permit you to discover the talents that emerge in the practice of law in a supportive environment that holds high expectations for your success.
