In the Clinical Practice Course, students have the opportunity to work in the TRU Community Legal Clinic (“TRU CLC") under the supervision of TRU CLC's team of supervising lawyers. During the course students develop and practice lawyering skills including: 1) client interviewing and counseling; 2) file management; 3) legal research; 4) the drafting of letters, memoranda and other legal documents such as wills or pleadings; 5) providing summary advice; and 6) advocating on behalf of clients. Students develop these skills in the process of assisting real clients with their legal issues. Students also engage in public education and law reform projects. Students work on approximately 40 to 45 legal matters for individual clients, depending on the complexity and duration of each case.
