Legal Clinic Registration


Application Process

The application is available a few weeks before registration. A complete application includes a resume, written statement and unofficial transcript submitted on the application. Students are notified of clinic acceptance before registration. Please check the date of clinic orientation before applying. Attending orientation is mandatory with no exceptions except under extreme circumstances.

Depending on the evolution of the COVID 19 pandemic, students will likely have to meet with clients directly and/or attend court hearing with clients even if Drake Law School is in a remote teaching period. Please keep this in mind as you apply for clinic.

Course Offerings

For a complete list of clinic prerequisites and courses, visit the Drake Legal Clinic webpage. The pre-requisites are also listed on the application.

An information session on the legal clinics and internships was Wednesday, April 6. You can view the recording here.

Students have 48 hours to withdraw after the list of accepted students has been posted. To withdraw, you must contact the clinic’s director, Suzie Pritchett

After the 48-hour window, withdrawal is only permitted in extraordinary circumstances by permission of the clinic director.

Student services will register students based on clinic accepted into and number of credits indicated on the application. Please double check your schedule and total number of credits after registration.
