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.

Depending on the evolution of the COVID 19 pandemic, you 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 this summer and fall.

Course Offerings

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

An information session on the legal clinics and internships was held on teams, March 26, 2021 at 1:00 p.m.

To watch the recording click here. The first few minutes were not recorded, all of the information about clinic registration discussed is on this webpage.

Acceptance and Registration

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.


Legal Clinic orientation is mandatory. Orientation for spring will be scheduled with your individual clinic faculty for summer and  August 20, 2021 for fall, 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Permission to be excused must be obtained by director Suzan Pritchett in advance.
