General information about individual clinics can be found below:
An Open House is held twice a year in fall and spring (prior to registration for the next semester) for interested students to gather information on the clinics. Clinic faculty and current clinic students are available for an "everything you ever wanted to know about clinics at University of Baltimore School of Law" question and answer session.
No, as long as the pre-requisites or co-requisites for the course have been fulfilled. Evidence is a pre-requisite of all clinics, except for Community Development clinics. See the pages for Law Clinic application and/or the Clinic Selection Policies and Procedures for more complete pre and co-requisite information for clinics.
The clinic administrator performs the lottery determining student placement. A list of students eligible to participate in clinic will be posted on a board in the second floor lobby of the School of Law, outside of the elevator. Please follow the instructions for each clinic on how to contact the faculty to set up an interview with them.
