Clinic Enrollment Process and Admission Timetable

Application Process

To be eligible for enrollment in any CLC clinical course, interested students must complete an application package, which includes a resume and a personal statement of interest. Applications for the Spring 2016 semester will be available beginning on October 5, 2015, at the CLC Open House, and are due in to the CLC Main Office (Notre Dame G-18) no later than 5 p.m. on October 14, 2015.

Following application submission, students must be accepted by the Supervising Attorney or Adjunct Professor of the particular program for which the student has applied. This may include an in-person interview, which can be scheduled on TWEN. Students must turn in their applications to the CLC Main Office prior to any scheduling an interview with one of the Supervising Attorneys or Adjunct Professors.

Students may apply to multiple programs, however, students may enroll in only one (1) in-house clinic or externship at a time. Exceptions to this policy must be cleared by the Clinical Director. A completed application requires a resume and a brief personal statement of interest.

Students who are accepted into any of the clinical programs will be notified by e-mail and/or posting prior to the start of the registration period for the upcoming Spring semester. A short waitlist may also be maintained for each program; students who are waitlisted will be notified should a slot in the desired clinical program become available. When a student has been officially accepted into any of the Clinical programs or externships, the studentís name will be submitted to Law Schoolís Records Office for registration.
