​​​​​​​​​​Preparation for the practice of law requires context and application. 

It requires firsthand involvement in what lawyers do and is how expertise is built. It requires challenging your understanding of justice and its fundamental role in society. The clinics and externships at VLS engage you in that preparation.

Every student at VLS has the opportunity to enroll in a clinic or externship, and for those entering in May 2014, each will be required to take at least 6 clinic or externship credits prior to graduation.

Explore the experiential courses that we offer. They are designed to provide a wide array of opportunities to enhance your legal education and help prepare you for the profession.
