In addition to our Externship programs, students may also participate in SCU’s clinical programs to gain practical legal experience.  The Northern California Innocence Project (NCIP) and the Katherine & George Alexander Law Center (KGACLC) both fulfill the Professional Skills requirement.

Students may participate in these clinics by enrolling in the relevant course during the normal registration period.  *Note: These clinics do not count toward externship credits.

Students looking to practice International Law or interested in study abroad should check out the International Law Summer Abroad Website.

Skills such as negotiation, interviewing and counseling, and mediation may be developed in the classes that offer a skills component and fulfill the Professional Skills requirement.

*See the Externship page for more opportunities to gain practical experience.
