The Legal Research Clinic accepts referrals from local nonprofits and legal aid offices to provide students with a wide variety of legal and investigative research problems. Our clients range from individuals to large and small organizations. There is constant variation to the subject matter and depth of problems to be researched. Client contact occurs during the intake and reporting phases. This clinic is ideal for the student who wants to become adept at researching, analyzing and interpreting the law, exercising legal judgment and counseling clients, while being exposed to a broad range of legal topics. The clinic is focused on answering the research questions presented and, if requested, providing a recommended course of action to clients.
