Clinic Enrollment Process and Admissions Timetable

Application Process

To be eligible for enrollment in any CLC program, interested students must first complete an application package, which includes a resume and a personal statement of interest. Students may apply to multiple programs and must complete a separate application for each program for which they wish to apply. Applications for the Summer 2016 and Fall 2016 semester will be available beginning on February 24, 2016, at the CLC Open House, and are due to the CLC Main Office (Notre Dame G-18) no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday March 9, 2016.

Following application submission, students must be accepted by the Supervising Attorney or Adjunct Professor of the particular program for which the student has applied. This may include an in-person interview, which can be scheduled on TWEN under Summer/Fall 2016 Clinic Interviews after February 24th at:
 Students must turn in their applications to the CLC Main Office prior to scheduling an interview with one of the Supervising Attorneys or Adjunct Professors.

Students who are accepted into any of the clinical programs will be notified by e-mail and/or posting prior to the start of the registration period for the upcoming Fall semester. A short waitlist may also be maintained for each program; students who are waitlisted will be notified should a slot in the desired clinical program become available. Once final decisions are made, students may need to decide which clinic or externship to enroll in, as students may enroll in only one (1) in-house clinic or externship at a time. Exceptions to this policy must be cleared by the Clinical Director. When a student has been officially accepted into any of the Clinical programs or externships, the student’s name will be submitted to the Law School’s Records Office for direct registration. If you are not automatically registered for a clinical program that you have been accepted into, please notify Marilyn Toran.
