Clinics Give You a Real-World Edge

From experience comes opportunity. The doctrinal foundation you build through classwork springs to life through the rich array of hands-on experiential opportunities you'll have at Cardozo. Clinics allow students to represent clients under supervision of faculty who are specialists in their areas of expertise.

The innovative spirit that pioneered the creation of Cardozo's first clinics is alive today. The school offers some clinics that run one semester, and others that run a full year. Students apply and are selected by the director of the clinic for what many describe as a transformative experience.
