At the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law clinic students are presented with valuable opportunities for collaboration within the UDC community and with local organizations. Internally, our clinics have organized collaborative training sessions, addressing topics such as Emotional Intelligence, Trauma-Informed Lawyering, Importance of Mitigation, Introduction to Clemency, Professionalism, and Career Panels, among others. Additionally, law students engage in cross-clinic representation, exemplified by students from the Immigration and Human Rights Clinic advising peers in the Criminal Defense and Racial Justice Clinic on the potential immigration consequences for their noncitizen clients.

Notably, the Housing Advocacy and Litigation Clinic facilitates student engagement with peers from other DC law schools and participation in community intake events in partnership with the Central American Resource Center.
These collaborations provide UDC Law students with a wealth of opportunities to expand their horizons, enrich their education, and contribute meaningfully to the community.
