Welcome to the Mills Legal Clinic

Clinical education has the power to shape the leaders of the future. No matter what area of law each student chooses to pursue, the experience of working in a clinic is transformative. Students receive hands-on experience doing the real work of lawyers, while providing critical legal services to underserved individuals and communities. Central to our mission is our ongoing commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and anti-racism principles, which we work to integrate into our teaching, learning, and provision of legal services. Each of the clinics within the Mills Legal Clinic is directed by faculty members who are not only top lawyers in their fields, but also exceptional educators and mentors. Students work in the clinics full-time for a quarter or more, engaging in an immersive experience that reinforces what they have learned in the classroom. Students enjoy a level of ownership in their cases that simply would not be possible if they were doing a clinic part-time. We take pride in the high quality of our students’ work.  On behalf of the Mills Legal Clinic faculty and staff, we invite you to learn more about our program.
