Civil Advocacy Clinic

The Civil Advocacy Clinic offers students opportunities to work on a wide variety of matters, including both litigation and appeals.

In the Civil Advocacy Clinic, students handle a variety of lawsuits in state and federal court, including those focused on civil rights issues, consumer protection matters, landlord-tenant disputes, and municipal ordinance violations.

Students also work on larger complex litigation matters, often in collaboration with other law firms. In addition, students may represent clients in appeals before the Missouri Court of Appeals.

In this clinic, students have the opportunity to work with adjuncts like Michael Becker on bankruptcy cases.  Professor Becker recently received an award in recognition of his pro-bono work with the Legal Clinics from the Missouri Bar.
