Directly Impact Your Community
Experiential education is a UIC Law hallmark—in fact, practical training is guaranteed for all of our students. Sharpen your skills in one of our Community Legal Clinics or at one of more than 50 externship sites. Working under the mentorship of a judge or attorney, you will assist real people with real legal problems—veterans, victims of domestic violence, citizens facing housing discrimination, and other people who need your help.
Additional Experiential Education Opportunities
Restorative Justice Project
The Restorative Justice Project (RJP) trains law students in restorative justice techniques, so that they become better lawyers. In the RJP, students observe court proceedings and visit jails or prisons to compare retributive to restorative justice approaches in actual practice. Students then put restorative justice principles to work with high school and elementary students in a neighborhood school environment.
