Clinical and Experiential Education

Stetson Law offers students more than 300 clinic and externship opportunities annually.

Programs are designed to enhance classroom-based learning and give students opportunities to gain valuable, real-world experience while working closely with Stetson faculty.

These experiences allow students to observe and participate in the application of substantive law, and find solutions to problems that confront attorneys on a daily basis. With approximately 28 clinic and externship courses at 60 hosting organizations, Stetson joins a handful of other law schools across the country who guarantee that every student can participate in a clinic or externship course during law school. While this does not mean that every student is guaranteed his or her first choice of courses, it does mean that any student who has the prerequisites can participate in a clinical course involving real practice.

The application for Spring 2023 Clinics and Externships is open! The application deadline is September 23rd - November 7th.
