Civil Litigation Clinic

Interns specializing in Civil Litigation experience the practical responsibility of advocacy for their clients.

These interns soon understand the connection between specific legal problems and public policy concerns, and learn how general civil cases are often affected by family law and criminal law issues.

Civil Litigation interns interview clients, pursue fact investigation, prepare and respond to pleadings, conduct depositions and represent clients in court. They counsel and advise clients, work with opposing attorneys and governmental agencies, and draft legal documents.

Civil Litigation allows interns to explore a wide range of civil matters and problems. These include:

  • Consumer issues
  • Landlord/tenant and lease issues
  • Contract issues
  • Tort defense
  • Elder law issues
