MARKET-ALIGNED LEARNING

Path to Practice clinics, externships, internships

Learning through real-world experience has been a critical part of our DNA from day one. As one of the first law schools to emphasize practical legal skills

“PROFESSORS PROVIDE CLOSE SUPERVISION AND GUIDANCE IN CLINICAL COURSES WHERE STUDENTS LEARN TO USE THEIR LEGAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO SERVE CLIENTS.” Professor Gretchen Flint Executive Director, John Jay Legal Services (pictured at right)

as a complement to theory, we offer a broad portfolio of clinics with a deep history of public service and commitment to social justice — students learn while advocating for clients and groups in need. Under the supervision of professors and under a student practice order, students transition from textbook to practice by acting as attorneys — they interview and counsel clients, mediate and arbitrate disputes, and appear in court and before administrative agencies. ProBono Scholars devote their entire final semester providing legal services in our clinics and other legal service offices after taking the February bar exam.
