Civil Rights Clinic

Student Experience

“The Clinic has been an excellent opportunity to learn substantive civil rights law and apply it to a real-world situation. It gives you a perspective on the law that regular law school classes don't.”
—TJ Harris, ’15

“I came into the clinic with little knowledge of civil rights law and left with a solid understanding of the substantive law and really useful litigation experience. In fact, I enjoyed working on the case so much; I came back for a second semester!”
—Britt Glass, ’14

“Participation in the clinic has allowed me to dramatically build my legal skill set while working on cases that actually matter to clients and learning substantively about issues that I’m really interested in. I came to law school to be able to do this type of work—and I’ve gotten to do it already. I really can’t express how valuable that is, both in terms of law school education and personal fulfillment. My experience with the clinic has not only been the highlight of my time at UT Law—but is the reason that I feel confident that law school was the correct professional choice for me.”
—Kali Cohn, ’14
