The commitment to experiential learning opportunities for students is woven into the culture at McGeorge. In addition to training tomorrow's legal advocates, our pioneering legal clinics deliver quality pro bono representation to underserved community members. Our students routinely earn impressive victories on behalf of their clients, both in individual cases and in public policy areas that benefit the larger community.
Our clinic students are enriched both academically and personally by helping members of our community navigate a variety of legal challenges. Students learn to apply legal theory to practice, develop professional lawyering skills, and perhaps most importantly, become reflective practitioners and lifelong learners.
Our on-campus clinics (Immigration Law, Elder and Health Law, Homeless Advocacy, and Bankruptcy), referred to collectively as "Community Legal Services (CLS)" have been serving our community since 1974. The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors honored CLS with the “Heroes of Human Services” award in 2018.
