Clinics include a classroom component as well as interactions with clients. Clinic applications are available online (see link below). Prerequisites vary, so read the descriptions carefully. All courses require an email authorization from the USD Legal Clinics to enroll. For Clinic I & II classes, the grading scale is a 4-tier Pass/Fail. Contact the USD Legal Clinics at (619) 260-7470 if you have any questions about the enrollment process. Enrollment is limited, and some clinics fill quickly.
