The Pepperdine Clinical Education Program provides students with opportunities to practice law, to work with clients, to learn from expert practitioners, to observe the work of lawyers and courts, to grow as professionals and to seek justice. Students may choose from seven clinics, five types of externships and two practicum. In our clinics, students practice law under the supervision of law professors with real clients and high stakes, in a rigorous learning environment. In externships, students work in the field with expert practitioners and judges in hundreds of field placements throughout Southern California and the nation. In practicums, students gain intensive experience in specialized field placements with expert faculty guidance in their field. In each of these programs, students learn lessons, virtues and skills that will transfer to every aspect of their future careers.
