In addition to working with supervising attorneys on Supreme Court cases, students accepted into the course will receive classroom instruction, analyze federal and state appellate decisions for possible litigation opportunities, and attend at least one Supreme Court argument per Term.

This will be a year-long, letter-graded course, with two credits awarded each semester. Students must enroll in both courses each semester. Students must have completed Constitutional Law I: Structure of Government in order to be eligible for the clinic.
