CourtTHE CLINICAL LEGAL EDUCATION PROGRAM offers law students an exciting opportunity to have hands-on, practical experience in the legal profession while still in law school. Under the guidance and supervision of clinical faculty, our law students handle all aspect of cases, from interviewing, to filing motions, to conducting trials in court.

The mission of The Clinical Legal Education Program is threefold.

  • To train law students to be competent, professional and ethical advocates for their clients

  • To provide first-rate pro-bono legal representation to indigent clients and communities in Harris County in the areas of law covered by the particular clinic

  • To provide support to the courts and legislature and to develop policies that can improve the surrounding communities

The late professor Joseph E. Hensley began the University of Houston Law Center's Clinical Programs in the early 1960's. Thanks to his vision, leadership and compassion, thousands of UH Law Center Graduates have continued his commitment to provide quality representation to those in need.
