After completing this course, students will have the necessary legal and practical knowledge to represent consumers effectively upon starting to practice law.

Regular participation in the clinic is required! You must work 50 hours per course credit hour. There is a weekly staff meeting class that lasts approximately 1 ½ hours.

Course Syllabus:

Course Notes:   The instructor for this course has expressed a preference to operate the course as distance education. This means no physical classroom is assigned for this course. This also most likely means synchronous internet videoconferencing class sessions during the day(s) and time(s) when the course is scheduled to meet. However, other, more flexible modalities are possible, such as not using some of the scheduled class sessions to meet but instead supplementing with asynchronous distance education techniques. More details should be made available from the instructor via their syllabus or via other means as the start of the semester nears.

Quota= 1.
