University of District of Columbia - David A. Clarke School of Law
UDC-DCSL is committed to the public interest, using the law to help those in need and reshape our community. Each year, our faculty and students provide more than 100,000 hours of essential legal services to DC residents. We are located in our nation’s capital, offering many opportunities to meet leaders in law and policy and participate in creating litigation, and legislative, regulatory and organizing strategies focused on solving society’s toughest problems. We are focused on extensive practical training, with the largest clinical requirement of any U.S. law school. Each student provides more than 700 hours of pro bono legal service, gaining direct, hands-on work experience and acquiring the skills needed to solve real problems. In recognition of this, in 2014 U.S. News & World Report ranked UDC-DCSL number seven in clinical training among all U.S. law schools.
