Experiential Learning

Gain Experience

FIU Law offers students the opportunity to learn about the law through real-life experiences through our Experiential Learning programs, students are able to combine theory with practice. Students may choose any or all of the three hands-on learning options to help them develop practice skills, to explore potential career paths, to reflect on their professional identity, and to observe how the justice system functions.

Clinical Program

FIU Law’s Clinical Program provides students with the opportunity to enhance their understanding of core legal and ethical principles by applying them in the context for which they were formulated.

Legal Externship Program

The goal of the Florida International College of Law Externship Program is to expose law students to the legal profession through a practical educational experience within a variety of contexts.

Semester-In-Practice

The Semester-In-Practice Practicum is a full-time immersion course offering students both the support of an in-house clinic and an offsite externship. The SIP Practicum provides third and fourth year (3L, 4L) with full-time practical experience for an entire semester at a private firm, a corporation, a non-profit, legal services organization or a government agency.

Pro Bono

The Pro Bono Program is a manifestation of the commitment of Florida International University College of Law, its faculty and alumni to ensure that you learn about a lawyer’s role in providing access to justice by assisting in providing legal services to the poor, disadvantaged, and other individuals or groups unable to secure legal assistance to address critical problems.  Your pro bono experience should be an integral part of your law school education and we urge you to participate enthusiastically in placements that will enable you to help others.
