Clinical Education: Experiences at Stanford Law School
Clinical Education: Experiences at Stanford Law School

Experience — solving real problems, serving real clients — is an essential ingredient in the training of every SLS student.

Founded in 2005, the Mills Legal Clinic is a vital part of Stanford Law’s mission to prepare every student for the challenges, responsibilities and rewards of a career as a legal professional.  Providing individualized, hands-on learning opportunities, this intensive training ground shapes future lawyers of every career aspiration, whether they choose to work in a large firm, become entrepreneurs, make policy or engage in full-time public service. And because clinic is a full-time experience — an SLS distinction — you can immerse yourself without distractions.

Message from the Director

Juliet M. Brodie
In the Stanford clinics, you’ll see SLS students practicing law in real cases, for real clients — in courtrooms, boardrooms and legislatures. You’ll see the profound differences they are making in the lives of their clients and how the lessons they have learned in the classroom are coming to life in the clinic.
