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 our first clinics is alive today. The Innocence Project was founded at Cardozo and has become responsible for the most signficant reforms in the criminal justice system in past decades. The Indie Film Clinic allows students to work with New York City filmmakers. Cardozo offers 18 clinics, some of which are 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 in the law.
