Whittier Law School’s on-campus legal clinics provide students with a variety of experiences that enhance their classroom study of substantive and procedural law. Students’ representation of actual clients and their involvement in cutting edge legal policy issues provides a context for classroom pedagogy and enables students to provide both pro bono representation to indigent clients and to begin to develop a professional and ethical identity. In addition to learning practical lawyering skills such as interviewing, counseling, negotiation, fact investigation, legal drafting and oral advocacy, students work closely with clinical faculty who help students reflect on and grow from their experiences as legal advocates. Many students find their clinic involvement one of the most formative, memorable, and important law school experiences.
