Washburn Law Clinic

Students who practice law in one of the Washburn Law Clinic practice areas have a legal skill-set that sets them apart from their law school peers. Employers know that Washburn Law Clinic students can "hit the ground running" because they have already learned to interact with clients; draft correspondence, pleadings and motions; negotiate with opposing counsel; and appear in court. Employers can count on clinic students to understand the importance of keeping accurate time records, managing multiple responsibilities, and meeting deadlines. In addition to these "hard" skills, clinic students learn "soft" skills such as interacting with supervising attorneys, office staff, and managing time. In short, clinic students can confidently tell employers they have practiced law before they even graduated from law school.
