Double the Practical Experience

Photograph: Nicole Johnson."I decided to enroll in clinic twice because I wanted to continue working with excellent professionals in a real-world environment. I participated in the Small Business & Nonprofit Transactional Law Clinic during the fall 2012 semester. My supervising attorney, Professor Janet Thompson Jackson, was a knowledgeable and supportive teacher. She helped me gain the confidence to work in many professional environments and to push myself intellectually. After such a great experience, I wanted to enroll in clinic again! During the spring 2013 semester I enrolled in the Civil Litigation Clinic. Professor Curtis Waugh, my supervising attorney, has been a valuable resource and provides students with guidance while teaching them how to navigate legal problems independently.

"The Clinic has helped me gain a competitive advantage in this tight job market. I now have the skills and experience that allow me to step into a job and begin work the first day! I highly recommend the Washburn Law Clinic to any student who wishes to gain practical experience while working with excellent staff and faculty."
