General Practice Clinic

The General Practice Clinic is a one-semester clinic in which student attorneys represent low-income clients on legal issues affecting their most fundamental needs, including family law (child custody and kinship care, child support and divorce), health, employment, public benefits (including TANF, food stamps, housing subsidies, and Social Security), and estate planning. Students enrolled in the General Practice Clinic will use a range of legal skills on behalf of clients in settings that include administrative tribunals and trial and appellate courts in the District of Columbia. A priority of the General Practice clinic is to serve DC’s low-income seniors.

Students who participate in the clinic are in their second, third or (in the case of part-time students) fourth years of law school. Their clinical experience enables them to represent clients and gain experience in all aspects of client representation, including interviewing, relationship-building, case development and management, counseling, and often negotiation and litigation. The Clinic is particularly valuable for students who may choose to become solo or small firm general practitioners, focus on elder law, or seek employment with non-profit law firms that serve low-income persons.
