Launched in 1995, Miami Law’s clinical program covers a broad range of practice areas and is infused with a deep commitment to social justice. Our clinics are taught primarily by full-time faculty who are experts and trailblazers in their field, as well as gifted teachers versed in clinical pedagogy.
Under close faculty supervision, students function as the lead lawyer responsible for all aspects of the case, transaction or policy project including developing strategy, interviewing clients and witnesses, negotiating with opposing counsel, drafting pleadings, contracts or policy reports, conducting trials or arbitrations, and other lawyering activities. The skills gained in clinic are transferable to any setting, and the experience is often transformative for students and clients alike.
Miami Law clinics operate as a dynamic and innovative law office at the forefront of public interest practice. We offer high-quality legal services to clients from some of Miami’s most under-resourced communities using delivery models that reach clients who would not otherwise have access to counsel. In addition to working with individual clients, all of our clinics include a law reform or community education component. Recognizing that complex problems require multi-disciplinary solutions, our clinics routinely engage in cross-clinic collaboration and interdisciplinary partnerships with University of Miami faculty and students in other disciplines like medicine, psychiatry, engineering, education and communications, to name a few.
