Minnesota Law Clinics

Real Cases. Real Clients. Real Impact.

For more than 100 years, the University of Minnesota Law School has offered students the opportunity to earn a first-rate clinical education working on real cases with real clients.

Clinical education at the University of Minnesota Law School includes a wide range of legal clinics that provide students with the opportunity to develop their legal skills and gain real-world client-service experience in a supportive setting. Under the Student Practice Rule adopted by the Minnesota Supreme Court, clinic students are permitted to represent clients in actual court and administrative agency proceedings under the supervision of clinic faculty. The depth and breadth of our clinical offerings range from sports, name, image & likeness to federal immigration litigation, racial justice, consumer protection, federal tax, business law, intellectual property law, environmental & energy law, and many more. With more than 25 clinics, over 50% of our student body enrolls in one or more clinics while at Minnesota Law.

We have divided our clinical offerings into five categories: business and nonprofits, economic justice, family and community, human rights and immigration, and rights and liberties. Visit the sections below to learn more about each clinic.
