We are Stanford Law
Problem-solvers. Leaders. Innovators.
Experience — solving real problems, serving real clients — is an essential ingredient in the training of every SLS student.
Founded in 2005, the Mills Legal Clinic is a vital part of Stanford Law’s mission to prepare every student for the challenges, responsibilities and rewards of a career as a legal professional. Providing individualized, hands-on learning opportunities, this intensive training ground shapes future lawyers of every career aspiration, whether they choose to work in a large firm, become entrepreneurs, make policy or engage in full-time public service. And because clinic is a full-time experience — an SLS distinction — you can immerse yourself without distractions.
“Working for the Community Law Clinic showed me law as a tool for social change and righting injustices, not a theoretical exercise. This really changed my world view.”
-Christopher Ho, JD ’87, Senior Staff Attorney, Legal Aid Society–Employment Law Center
