Important: Students who have already taken a clinic and want to continue their work in a subsequent semester do not register for the clinic through Helios. Instead, students apply to continue their work through the Advanced Clinical Program.

Clinical registration Preferencing

Students register for most clinics through Helios during registration preferencing the spring of the year before.  The clinical round is the first round in a series of registration phases. Students register for clinics for the fall, winter and spring terms of the upcoming year.  Students may submit up to 6 preferences during the clinical round.

For clinics that are offered in more than one semester, each semester counts as a distinct clinical preference.  After results for the clinical round are released, clinical add/drop opens in Helios.

Students may participate in one clinic at a time. Once students have taken a clinic, they may not sign up for it again through Helios (see above note about the Advanced Clinical Program).

By Application Clinics

A handful of our clinical offerings require an application process for enrollment. Registration for these clinics is not done through Helios. Each clinic has it’s own application process and application deadline. This information can be found in the clinics’ description in the HLS Course Catalog.

Clinical Course Component registration

All clinics have a required clinical course component. Unless otherwise noted in the clinic description in the HLS Course Catalog, when a student enrolls in a clinic, they are automatically enrolled in the required clinical course component. Clinic enrollment and clinical course enrollment are generally linked – if a student drops from a clinic, they will also be dropped from the clinical course and vice-versa.

understanding the clinical curriculum

HLS offers more clinical opportunities than any law school in the world!  Take some time to familiarize yourself with the opportunities available to you.
