Criminal Clinic Note:  To get the optimal experience from the Criminal Clinic, it would be best to be available at least two mornings each week to go to court with your supervising attorney. In addition, if you have in the past worked or expect to concurrently work in the criminal defense or prosecution area, there maybe a conflict and this experience should be divulged to Tracy Kish before the applications are due.

Entrepreneurial Law Clinic Note:  You must be able to perform all of your required hours (12 or 16 for 3 or 4 credit hours respectively) during the regular business day (M-F 9 - 5 pm).  Having an outside job is not recommended and you will need consent from Professor Heather Harper to do both.
