Experiential Learning

Georgia State Law is known for its innovative experiential curriculum, and continues to rank in the top third of clinical programs in the U.S. Students may tailor their practical learning by choosing from among 25 experiential courses that prepare them for a career in law. Through our award-winning in-house clinics, students represent clients and deepen their knowledge and skills while providing needed legal services to those who cannot afford to pay. Students in our off-site clinics, externships and practice-based courses explore different practice environments and areas of law, expand their knowledge, and illuminate their professional interests while increasing their understanding of the law and the profession. Students may also enroll in sophisticated and realistic simulation courses where they not only practice and perform essential lawyering skills, but leave the courses with legal documents and other tools they will use in practice.
