Please explain why you wish to enroll in a clinical course by typing a statement of interest of no more than 250 words in the space below (do not attempt to attach files): In your statement, please discuss the type of experience you are hoping to get from a clinic to assist us in matching you with a clinic.  

 


You may note your prior or intended future commitment to public interest work, or to the client base served by one or more of the clinics, or describe any special qualifications or interest you bring to one or more of the clinics. If you are requesting a GPA waiver, you should explain why it should be granted. You may also explain or clarify your answers to any of the other questions asked.  

  

SECTION 4 - CHOICE OF CLINICS

You will find a list of our current clinics below.  Full descriptions of the clinics are available on the law school website.  The scope of the clinics may change each year.  You will be provided with a description of a clinic's work if you receive an offer for the clinic.

Please rank the clinic(s) for which you wish to apply, in order of preference.  Please place a "1" next to your first choice clinic, a "2" next to your second choice clinic, up to "7" for your seventh choice.  Do not rank any clinic in which you would not want to enroll, though we encourage you to list multiple options, as clinic positions are in high demand and you may not get your first choice of clinic.  This means that you can apply to only one clinic (by placing a "1" next to that clinic), or you can apply to all 7 clinics (by placing "1" through "7" next to each of the clinics), or you can apply to some but not all of the clinics. If you are not interested in a clinic, select "N/A" next to that clinic.

We receive many applications and we try to accommodate as many students as possible.  Depending on the number of applicants, we may not be able to offer a clinical position to every student who applies. You are welcome to come to the CSJ to speak with the Director or Associate Director if you would like further guidance as to the application process.
