"UK's Legal Clinic offers an exceptional introduction to the realities of legal practice and client representation..."
The College of Law's Law Clinic, directed by Professor Allison Connelly, UK Law '83 and former Kentucky Public Advocate, opened across the street from the College of Law in 1998. As a third-year student, you would have the unique opportunity to advise, counsel and represent needy clients on a variety of legal matters. Under the Kentucky Supreme Court's limited practice rule, and with the supervision of the clinical director, you would represent clients in negotiations with federal and state agencies, in administrative hearings, and in court proceedings. You also would interview clients, draft legal documents, file pleadings and conduct discovery.

The Legal Clinic allows you to integrate your knowledge of substantive and procedural law with practice skills, including problem identification and solving, legal analysis, legal research, interviewing, investigation, counseling, negotiation, drafting, case planning and management, and the recognition and resolution of ethical problems. UK's Legal Clinic offers an exceptional introduction to the realities of legal practice and client representation, whether or not you choose to pursue a career in public interest law.
