For most of Chicago-Kent's in-house clinical programs, students are given the option of enrolling for three or four credits. Students who enroll for four credits put in a minimum of 16 hours per week and students who enroll for three credits put in a minimum of 12 hours per week during the 14 week fall and spring semesters.
During the summer semester, students who enroll for three credits put in a minimum of 24 hours per week and 32 hours per week for four credits.
In the Intellectual Property Clinic, students enroll for three credits.
Each of the in-house clinical programs provides classroom as well as field-work instruction to the students enrolled in that program as part of their weekly hourly requirement. With permission, students may enroll for a second semester in each of the in-house programs with the exception of the Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Clinic.
