Our Clinical Program
The Clinical Semester Program is open to students who will be 3L Day students or 4 L Evening students who have completed the required prerequisites by the time of their program participation. Evening students are eligible to enroll in full-time clinics if their schedules can accommodate a full-time commitment during the day. Day students may enroll in the part-time ADR clinic, but Evening students will be given a preference for available spaces. Review carefully the prerequisites for each clinic in which you are interested.
Please note that clinics with insufficient subscription will be canceled after the lottery bidding process has been completed.
Students who enroll in the Children & Families Clinic, the Criminal Justice Clinic or the Environmental and Land Use Law Clinic may become authorized as Certified Legal Interns (CLIs). Please carefully note the Florida Board of Bar Examiners (FBBE) new rule regarding the Certified Legal Internship (CLI) program if you are planning to participate in a clinical semester during your final year of law school. Please file your bar application early, preferably your first year of law school, as you must receive an initial clearance letter from the FBBE to be eligible for the CLI program. See additional Information located on the FBBE FAQ page at www.floridabarexam.org.
