There are still a few open slots in the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation Clinic (formerly the Health Law and Policy Clinic) at the HLS Wilmer Hale Legal Services Center this spring.

Working in the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation gives you the chance to represent clients, work with individuals and coalitions on cutting-edge health law issues, and gain hands-on experience advocating for clients in many aspects of health law and policy reform. A clinical experience provides you with the opportunity to develop your lawyering skills and is not only for those interested in or committed to a career in health law.

The clinic offers academic credit (2-4 credits for 10-20 hours per week) and meets the pro bono graduation requirement. Clinic hours are flexible and can allow you to work from home. More information about the clinic is available at http://www.law.harvard.edu/academics/clinical/lsc/clinics/health%20projects.htm.

The clinic is taken in conjunction with a 2-credit clinical workshop “Health, Disability and Planning: Law and Policy Clinical Workshop,” which meets Tuesday evenings from 5pm-7pm.  If you are interested in enrolling in a clinic and the clinical workshop you can enroll by contacting Karina Chamorro in the Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs at  kchamorro at law.harvard.edu.
