Clinics and Externships
The Brandeis School of Law offers a number of experiential learning opportunities to extend students' experience beyond the classroom.
These hands-on opportunities include a clinic that allows students to work directly with clients during Emergency Protective Order hearings, divorce situations and housing cases. Our Robert and Sue Allen Ackerson Law Clinic has helped more than 1,400 domestic violence victims to date.
We also have an Entrepreneurship Clinic, which offers students the opportunity to work with UofL's MBA students as they launch businesses and compete with other schools nationwide.
The Brandeis School of Law has a close relationship with the bench and bar in the city of Louisville, providing students with access to attorneys and judges. Externships provide opportunities to work with judges, represent clients, prepare and try cases and more.
All of these options provide Brandeis students with invaluable training beyond a textbook, honing their lawyering skills and preparing them for what's to come after graduation.
More information about our experiential learning opportunities is available in our Academics section.
