Clinics & Externships

All Clinics and Externships are eligible for a credit exchange.

Clinics

If you are enrolled in a clinic course, you can elect to drop 1 credit in exchange for 35 hours of pro bono service (assuming you do not need the credit for graduation). You may exchange a maximum of 1 credit for each distinct Clinic in which you are enrolled (i.e. if you enroll in the same Clinic twice, you may not exchange a credit each time you are enrolled).

Students who elect this option must submit this form to TPIC.

Externships

If you are earning academic credit through an externship placement, you can elect to drop 1 credit in exchange for 35 hours of pro bono service (assuming you do not need the credit for graduation).

Students who elect this option must submit this form to TPIC.

Clinics, Externships, & the New York Bar

For students applying to the New York Bar, all of your hours from your Clinic and Externship can count toward the NY Bar’s Pro Bono Requirement. Even if you are receiving academic credit for your Clinic or Externship, all of the hours may be applied to the requirement.

Please follow the instructions on the Clinics & Externships page to complete the affidavit.
