About the Clinical Law Center

In the Notre Dame Clinical Law Center, second and third-year students receive academic credit while providing free legal services to individuals, small businesses, and non-profit organizations. The students are trained and closely supervised by full time members of the Notre Dame Law School faculty. In addition to representing clients, the Clinical Law Center’s students and faculty serve the community, the legal profession, and the academy through a variety of educational and law reform efforts.

The Clinical Law Center operates four separate faculty-run clinics. Three of those clinics operate from offices just south of the Notre Dame campus at 725 Howard Street: the Community Development Clinic, the Economic Justice Clinic, and the Mediation Clinic. The Intellectual Property Clinic is located on campus in Biolchini Hall of Law.

The Clinical Law Center carries on a sixty-year legacy of clinical programs at Notre Dame, establishing the Law School as both a pioneer in clinical legal education and a model of current, high quality pedagogy.
