Impact and Programs
In the 2016-17 school year law students filled 1,233 volunteer placements, providing 24,000 hours of service to over 8,400 clients.
In the summer of 2017 16 law students were placed in 12 Metro area and 4 Greater Minnesota area legal aid programs to work full time for the 10 weeks of the summer.
We will continue to sponsor our Summer Clerkship Program and our Street Law Program. Our Law School Public Service Program will continue to work with the same percentage of enrolled and bricks and mortar law students as we have in the past two years.
