Clinical Education at UT Law

Real Cases. Real Experience.

The University of Texas School of Law has one of the largest and most vibrant clinical programs in the country. We established our first clinic in 1974 and have steadily expanded our offerings since then. The majority of our upper-class students participate annually in our sixteen clinics and seven internships.

Clinics and internships integrate skills, theory, strategy, and law, building a bridge between the classroom and the profession.
