Support Our Clinical Programs
Clinical legal education is a critical component of law school curricula, and Denver Law has led the way for well over 100 years. We founded the first legal aid dispensary in the country in 1904 and have continued to provide innovative, hands-on legal education to our students ever since. Our clinical programs provide opportunities to engage in the practice of law during school while empowering underrepresented individuals and communities.
Denver Law currently has seven in-house student law office clinics where student-attorneys can learn to become highly competent and ethical lawyers through faculty supervision and real-life client representation. In addition, we are fortunate to have three additional clinics under our roof, the Low Income Tax Payer Clinic, the Veterans Advocacy Project and the Tribal Wills Project. Each of these programs provides legal assistance and representation to populations that don't often have access to representation, all while giving students specialized, hands-on experience that will help them make an immediate, valuable impact in their chosen fields.Give Now
