Pitt Law provides upper level law students with exciting opportunities to learn and apply lawyering skills. The in-house Legal Clinics provide unparalleled opportunity for students to represent clients and to gain practical skills. Come too one of these meetings to learn more about these experiential learning opportunities, what kind of commitment is required, how you will benefit by participation and how to enroll.

Because Clinics are in the nature of a professional commitment, we require attendance at one of these informational meetings prior to registration in the clinics. A tour of the Clinics and a pizza lunch will follow the meetings.

Pre-Registration

If you are thinking about or plan to enroll in a clinic next year (or are curious about what it is like to take a clinic) you must attend one of the clinic informational sessions prior to registration. This applies to enrollment in the following clinics: the Civil Practice-Elder Law Clinic, Civil Practice-Health Law Clinic, Environmental Law Clinic, Family Law Clinic, Immigration Law Clinic, Low Income Tax Clinic, and Securities Arbitration Clinic. Additionally, it applies to enrollment in the PA Practice Practicum.

Enrollment in the Clinics and PA Practice Practicum will be monitored for compliance with this requirement.  If a student enrolls in a clinic without attending a session, he or she will be automatically dis-enrolled in the clinic by the Registrar.

If you attended one of the clinic informational meetings held in March 2018 for the 2018 Fall Registration and signed the attendance sheet, you need not attend again to register for this spring semester.  If you have questions regarding any of the clinics please send an email to lawclin@pitt.edu

Additional meetings will be held in the Spring 2018 and Fall 2019.
