Our Law School is committed to providing legal services that are consistent with the University’s mission of making a contribution to the society we are all part of. All of our Clinical Programs are taught by professors, private and public lawyers and trial judges who are focused on assisting our students in developing the skills necessary to succeed after law school. Consistent with this goal, our clinical and externships programs contain an important classroom component which allows students to get the most from their practical experiences.

Students may apply for any of the programs mentioned above after they fulfill the prerequisite courses which are designed to provide the basic legal skills necessary to succeed in the world outside of the classroom. This means that for most students, their experiential learning experiences will not happen until the summer after their second year on third year.

Becoming a Certified Legal Intern

Many of our programs require students to become Certified Legal Interns. This process requires Florida Supreme Court approval, which the clinical staff will assist students in attaining. The Florida Supreme Court’s Student Practice Rule is located in Chapter 11 of its rules. The Supreme Court defines a Certified Legal Intern (CLI) as a law student who is authorized to represent clients in and out of court and speak on the official court record as long as the student is supervised by a licensed Florida attorney.
