Campus clinics

Where law school becomes a real-life experience

Legal clinics are law offices owned and operated by UMass Law. There are two clinics located on campus.

Students involved with the on-campus law clinics represent low-income clients under the supervision of faculty members and/or experienced practitioners both in court and at administrative hearings. Students also counsel clients on a variety of legal matters outside the courtroom setting.

For participating students, law school becomes a real-life experience, beyond the academics.

Clinic clients—who would be otherwise under-represented—benefit from quality legal representation for their claims.
