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 may include a resume and a personal statement of interest. Students may apply to multiple programs. There is a global application for the following programs:  

  • Criminal Justice Clinic
  • Civil and Human Rights Clinic
  • Fair Housing Clinic
  • Investor Justice and Education Clinic
  • Intellectual Property and Trademark Clinic
  • Child Welfare Clinic
  • WBG/IMF ADR Program
  • ADR Consortium Externship

Applications for the Fall 2018 semester and year long programs in the 2018-2019 academic year will be available beginning February 21, 2018 online and are due by 12:00pm (noon) on Wednesday, February 28. Following application submission, students must schedule an interview on TWEN.  

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 spring semester. A short waitlist may also be maintained for each program; students who are waitlisted will be notified should a time 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 and externship professor. 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 Bernice Ines via email at bernice.ines@law.howard.edu(link sends e-mail).

There is a separate application for our Externship Programs. The externship application is accepted on a rolling basis.
