Welcome to the Law Offices' In-House Clinic Program at Chicago-Kent College of Law. This semester you will learn how to practice law under the close supervision of a faculty attorney - an experience that is available only in the law school's in-house clinical programs.
The first meeting will be Monday, May 22, 2000 from 3:00 - 4:00 pm in Room 580. Attendance at this meeting is mandatory for all beginning students in the In-House Law Offices programs. At the meeting, we will distribute the Handbook.
Continuing students should contact their supervising attorney and pick up a handbook from the Receptionist in Room 600 on the morning of Monday, May 22.
You will meet with your attorneys at the initial practice group section meetings after the first meeting. The rooms will be announced during the meeting and on the 6th Floor Bulletin Board.
For Criminal Clinic students, please complete the attached MCC form and return it to the Receptionist if you have not already done so. This needs to be done before the summer session begins.
We are looking forward to working with all of you during the summer semester.
