- The Children's Justice Clinic was interviewed by the Comcast Newsmakers, CN8, on 3/13/07.
The Children's Justice Clinic was one of the main elements that attracted me to Rutgers School of Law - Camden. Yet, while I shared a passion for its goals and mission before entering law school, I could not have foreseen that this opportunity would exceed my expectations in every way. Participating in Clinic has been the most rewarding and challenging experience I have been presented with, and I have found it to be both eye-opening and career-defining.
If you are considering taking a clinical course, we strongly urge you to attend our clinical information session. Our sessions offer you the opportunity to pre-register for the clinic of your choice. Many times the clinics reach their capacity during the initial early-registration period. Please note that early registration occurs BEFORE the regular class registration period. All registration for the clinical programs is handled directly by the clinical faculty. Students cannot register for any of the clinics through the regular law school registration.
Students who have completed at least two-thirds of their law school course work and are in good academic standing can be certified for practice by the New Jersey Supreme Court pursuant to New Jersey Court Rule 1:21-3(b) which governs the practice of law students. Working under the direct supervision of faculty who are licensed lawyers, students perform the full range of functions necessary for proper client representation, including appearing in the New Jersey Courts and before various administrative courts.
