Clinical Faculty - The Mentoring Advantage

Harvard Law School has 12 Clinical Professors of Law and more than 60 Clinical Instructors on staff, expert practitioners in their fields who are passionately devoted to mentoring students in their professional development. The clinical faculty not only teach clinical courses but also carry active caseloads of their own. This practical experience is invaluable as they supervise and guide students in developing their own practice skills and client relationships. With the remarkable breadth of in-house resources at Harvard, students are carefully matched by their practitioner-supervisors with cases that meet their skill levels and educational interests.
