The program gives law students a chance to gain practical legal experience working with clients under the supervision of faculty and licensed attorneys. Through the clinic, student attorneys can work with clients to review or prepare legal documents, conduct research and provide advice. Students attorneys have helped clients with topics such as renting farmland and facilities, CSA membership agreements, farmers market rules, liability waivers and purchasing or establishing a business. Student attorneys cannot represent clients in litigation matters through the program.

Applications are now being accepted for work to be done during the fall 2018 semester. Clients will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis and should be able to travel to State College for client meetings. To apply or learn more, email Ross Pifer with a detailed explanation and background of the legal issue to be addressed at or call 814-865-3723.
