Widener’s legal clinics invite you to experience what it’s like to be a lawyer—handling real cases for real clients while building the professional skills and confidence you need for the future.

On the Delaware Campus you can participate in our Delaware Civil Law Clinic, which represents victims of domestic violence. Our Pennsylvania Criminal Law Clinic teaches you the finer points of criminal defense, while our Environmental Law and Natural Resources Clinic allows you to help litigate clean water, endangered species, and hazardous waste cases. Or you can work with our Veterans Law Clinic, one of only three law school clinical programs that represents disabled veterans and their dependents in Veterans Affairs and Federal Courts.

On our Harrisburg Campus, our Harrisburg Civil Law Clinic  introduces you to community legal issues and clients across several areas of law such as bankruptcy, consumer law, and divorce. You can also participate in the Environmental Law and Natural Resources Clinic.
