Community Legal Clinics

Learn in Our Clinics. Advocate for Our Community.

UIC Law clinical opportunities offer JD candidates the opportunity to develop real legal experience at the JD level. All clinics are designed to develop the courtroom-ready skills that employers seek in career applicants.

The Education fund of the CLCs was established by Michael Schlesinger, alumnus of the Law School and former director of the Community Enterprise & Solidarity Economy Clinic (formerly known as the Business Enterprise Clinic).  The scholarship is a merit-based scholarship awarded each year to a clinic student or students who have demonstrated exceptional dedication to and performance of direct legal services to clients.
