Experiential Learning

Sub Menu ↓

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.

FIU Law’s robust Clinical Program provides students the opportunity to represent real clients with real legal problems (not in simulations or role-playing exercises). Students are supervised by faculty members, with whom they often develop close and lasting mentoring relationships.

The Legal Externship Program allow students to work in non-profit law offices, governmental agencies and judicial chambers

FIU Law’s Pro Bono Program offers students an opportunity to provide direct service to clients who cannot afford to hire a lawyer.
