Clinical Programs at the University of Mississippi provide students with real-world lawyering experience while serving Mississippians in a variety of legal capacities. There are 11 clinical and pro bono programs:
· Child Advocacy Clinic
· Clinical Externship Program
· Elder Law Clinic
· Housing Clinic
· MacArthur Justice Clinic (new for 2014)
· Pro Bono Initiative
· Street Law Clinic
· Transactional Clinic
· Volunteer Income Tax Clinic
Clinic students, admitted to practice under Mississippi’s Limited Practice Act, take responsibility for their clients’ cases under the guidance of clinic faculty. The clinical experience includes a weekly classroom seminar that immerses students in legal theory, practical skills and professional responsibility concerns, and offers a chance to reflect on the clinical practice experience. The programs offer a rich variety of clinical experiences, with offerings that train students for a wide range of practice options.
“In the last decade, the law school has made a meaningful commitment to training lawyers in practical skills while providing assistance to Mississippi’s underrepresented. The school’s clinical programs will offer students a broad range of practice opportunities, from transactional to complex litigation to assisting pro se litigants.”-Professor Debbie Bell, Associate Dean for Clinical Programs
