Enroll in the Clinical Law Program

Students in the Clinical Law Program learn by doing while receiving the close supervision and expert instruction needed for a successful experience.

To participate in the Clinical Law Program students must enroll in one of the two clinics: Business Trusts and Estates Clinic (618-T) and Immigration Clinic (618-1).

The clinics are graded on a letter basis, and students can earn two-to-four academic credits per semester. If students perform well in their first semester of clinic, they may apply to enroll for a second semester in the same clinic or in a clinic with a different practice area to provide students with more in-depth or diverse legal experiences to match their professional development goals.

Clinical courses are open to second- and third-year students in good academic standing; however, due to frequent over-enrollment, priority is given to third-year students.

For more information on the Clinical Law Program, the clinical practice areas offered and program faculty, call (503) 370-6140 or email lawclinic@willamette.edu.


As part of their Clinical Law Program experience, four Willamette College of Law students prepared a friend-of-the-court brief for a case before the U.S. Supreme Court. They traveled to Washington D.C. to observe oral arguments in the case.
