Mandatory Clinic Program

All students at UNM are required to complete a six credit-hour clinical course as part of the J.D. requirements. Students represent actual clients with supervision by tenured and tenure-track faculty. Students participate in one of four clinical sections:

Externships

Students gain valuable practical skills in a real-world setting while working with a supervising attorney. Externs confront actual legal problems and analyze and explore the various roles that lawyers or legal institutions play in their communities. Externships are intended to supplement and complement the knowledge and experience students receive in the Law Practice Clinic and in their other law school courses.

Any students in the above courses who are representing actual clients do so under the close supervision of faculty or practicing attorneys.
