Clinical Programs

General Practice Clinic

In the General Practice Clinic, a six-credit course, students represent low-income clients in a broad range of cases, including criminal, divorce, probate, child support and custody matters, and administrative matters. In recent years, General Practice Clinic students have briefed and argued cases before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court, conducted a jury trial in federal court, and participated in hundreds of matters before Maine’s federal, state and probate courts, and administrative agencies. Through their work, General Practice Clinic students serve an important community need and develop the skills and understanding necessary to effectively practice law.
