As Washington DC’s only public law school, the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law is a legal institution in the northwest region of the nation’s capital concentrating in public interest law. The Clarke School of Law is home to a JD program offered in full-time and part-time evening options. The JD curriculum features the largest clinical requirement of any such program in America with students expected to engage in over 600 hours of pro bono legal practice. The Clarke School of Law oversees nine legal clinics in subjects such as Whistleblower Protection and Immigration.
I admire the professors that I've met because they have ignored the political boundaries that other law schools live by and get down to what the law school and the community need most. The students need practice and the community needs activity thus the clinical program was implemented in the JD program. I cannot wait to start studying here.
