Regent Law offers three clinical opportunities—the Civil Practice Clinic, practicums, and a third-year practice certificate—that allow students to engage in authentic legal environments and develop fundamental skills that will help them fulfill their legal callings with excellence.
Through the Civil Practice Clinic, students partner with the local Legal Aid office and serve low-income clients in the Hampton Roads area, helping to improve their quality of life by advocating for issues such as the reinstatement of unemployment and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits.
Practicums equip students with hands-on experience in bankruptcy law, civil practice, child advocacy, and immigration law. Students can also obtain a third-year practice certificate, which allows them to practice law in Virginia under the supervision of a practicing attorney.
Third-Year Practice Opportunities
A third-year practice certificate allows students to appear in court and before administrative tribunals in the Commonwealth of Virginia. With the certificate, students are able to better capitalize on their internships, externships, and part-time legal jobs.
