HLS Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs
The Office of Clinical and Pro Bono Programs develops legal education and practice opportunities for Harvard Law School (HLS) students. We are an administrative office overseeing HLS clinical and pro bono programs. With nearly 30 clinics and hundreds of externships placements, HLS has more clinical opportunities for students than any law school in the world. All J.D. students at HLS are required to contribute at least 40 hours of law-related pro bono work as a condition for graduation. In addition, law students may enroll in clinical legal education programs to gain practice experience. Our office develops programs, matches students to opportunities, and tracks student progress.
