The Milton A. Kramer Law Clinic Center is an in-house, real-client clinic which provides legal services to members of the community unable to afford legal counsel. In our Clinic, third-year students act as the primary legal counsel for our clients from start to finish. Nearly one third of all third year students complete a clinic course.

The Clinic Center is where students put their lawyering skills to work representing real clients in civil, criminal, and transactional matters. With close assistance from faculty members, a student in one of the civil clinics may incorporate a nonprofit institution, help a homeowner sue for predatory lending practices, or obtain disability benefits for a client. In the criminal clinic, students represent indigent defendants charged in misdemeanor and serious felony matters and in a special project prosecute Domestic Violence, Menacing and Stalking cases in a local suburban court.

Judith LiptonIn all of our clinics students take primary responsibility for their clients. Their representation is guided by close supervision from the clinical faculty and collaboration with their student colleagues. The clinical experience includes balance between case work, broader community projects, substantive and skills focused seminars, and regular case rounds. I’m privileged to work with students who bring to clinic work their commitment to the highestlevel of legal practice and to providing legal assistance to those who have been unrepresented.
