INTENSIVE CLINIC

Intensive clinic is a twelve credit, one semester course in which the students will receive an enhanced, closely supervised and graded clinical experience and, in addition, satisfy their senior seminar paper requirement. Intensive Clinic has the potential to be the optimal means for law students to transition from law school to the practice of law in that it provides a natural progression from theory (doctrinal classes) to simulations to clinic to Intensive Clinic, where students engage in sophisticated lawyering activities on a full-time basis for an entire semester, with a safety net in place. The program will be available for a select number of senior law students. Each student enrolled in Intensive Clinic will receive ten graded clinical education credits and a separate grade of two credits for writing a paper that will satisfy the Senior Seminar paper requirement under the close supervision of the clinical faculty member who selected the student.

Areas of Law: Plaintiffs Employment Law, Civil Litigation, Vaccine Injury Litigation, Criminal Law, Entrepreneurial Law, Family Law and Tax Law.

To Apply:

Students will apply to Intensive Clinic via a written submission detailing their qualifications and their reasons for seeking admission. This submission will be the basis for discussion during a subsequent individual interview with each applicant. Please direct all written submissions to Tracy Kish at tkish@kentlaw.iit.edu.

Student Argues Before Judge

Kudos to former C-K Law Group student Tracy Harkins, supervised by Professor Richard Kling, who argued in front of a 7th Circuit Judges Kanne, Hamilton and Sykes in Federal Court on Wednesday, October 7. The oral argument was based on the appeal of the district court's denial of a motion to suppress evidence. Tracy argued that the finding of reasonable suspicion, in support of a "Terry" stop, at the district court level was erroneous, on the basis that the facts the district court found supported reasonable suspicion were not articulable and reliable enough to confer such suspicion.
