Welcome to the Clinical Program! 

The Clinical Program at American University Washington College of Law offers ten in-house clinics and participates in the city-wide program D.C. Law Students in Court. Our students represent low-income and under-represented clients or groups in litigation, administrative, transactional, and policy matters. Though they receive faculty guidance and feedback, student attorneys are responsible for managing litigation, carrying out transactional work, and engaging in issue-based advocacy. By learning the criteria for good lawyering and practicing regular self-evaluation, student attorneys develop reflective habits that encourage continuous professional growth.
