University of Windsor Law students can enroll at LAW for course credit during the fall and/or winter academic terms.
Full time in the fall or winter terms – you would choose to take LAW for between 8-11 credits in one academic term. Each credit equals 3 hours of work at the clinic. For example, 8 credits = 24 hours of work at the clinic per week.
Part time in both the fall and winter terms – you would choose to take LAW for between 4-7 credits in both academic terms. Each credit equals 3 hours of work at the clinic. For example, 4 credits = 12 hours of work at the clinic per week for both the fall and winter academic terms.
Students must complete 3 self-evaluations and review them with the Academic Clinic Professor. The evaluations allow students to reflect on their performance as advocates, development of professional skills and knowledge and application of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The evaluations are meant to supplement the ongoing mentorship and supervisory relationship with the supervising lawyers. Students in both the part-time and the full-time program must also enroll in the 3-credit Clinic Seminar Course. Students are enrolled in the Clinic Seminar Course during the term the student participates at the clinic.
Please note: each credit equals 3 hours of work in the clinic. For example, a 11-credit placement equals 33 hours in the clinic per week for the academic term.
All students must additionally enroll in the Clinic Seminar course for 3 credits.
