Students enrolling into the Delaware Civil Clinic, the Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Clinic (PA), or the Veterans Law Clinic will be required to attend a mandatory training session prior to the start of the semester.

Applicants cannot register until they receive approval from the appropriate professor. During pre-registration, you should register for other courses of your choice. If you are accepted you can rearrange your schedule during the add/drop period. There is no fee for this add/drop.

Note: Once a student has registered, Section 310(C)(3) of the Dean’s Office Regulations permits that student to drop a clinic or externship only upon a showing of exceptional hardship and with the approval of the Dean of Students.

Students are invited to visit the clinic offices which are located in the Clinic Wing on the 2nd floor of the law school and are encouraged to talk to current or former clinical students.
