The Clinic

The Sciences Po Law School Clinic is an original educational program hosted by the Sciences Po Law School in Paris. An experiential learning program built around a contextual, interdisciplinary and reflective approach to the contemporary practice of law, it enables students and partner organizations to engage in cutting edge public interest and social innovation projects at the local, national and global scale.

The clinic’s pedagogical and public interest mission relies on the active involvement of faculty, students and partner organizations in projects related to current social justice issues.

Research is an integral part of the clinic, which aims to influence public debate within and beyond academic circles through the publication of reports, academic scholarship, as well as public events organized at Sciences Po.

The Sciences Po Law School Clinic covers five specific fields:

Each field translates into a specific clinical program, articulated around a clinical seminar. Clinical seminars are taught by Sciences Po faculty, as well as professionals drawn from a variety of fields. They are built around the various clinical projects on which teams of students, supervised by professional tutors, work throughout the academic year in partnership with a wide range of organizations.
