Experiential Learning Opportunities

At Pitt Law, students not only gain theoretical knowledge but also practical experience through participation in clinics, practicums, externships, the Semester in D.C. Program, moot court and mock trial competitions, and other opportunities for hands-on learning.

To fulfill the Experiential Learning graduation requirement, each student must complete at least 6 credits of experiential courses that engage students in performance of the experiential skills generally regarded as necessary for effective and responsible participation in the legal profession. This requirement supercedes the Professional Skills requirement. View courses that fulfill the Experiential Learning requirement.
