Academics

PhoenixLaw‘s mission is based upon three pillars: 1) a student-centered educational experience; 2) supporting programs that allow for professionally-prepared graduates; and 3) commitment to underserved communities.

* Clinical Programs: PhoenixLaw houses a Mediation Clinic and other clinical programs designed to develop and enhance practice skills. Courses are offered in trial and appellate practice, mediation and alternative methods of dispute resolution. Clinical methods are used in various courses throughout the curriculum.

* Externships: PhoenixLaw offers qualified, upper-level students in good academic standing opportunities to participate in a for-credit externship program. Students attend a classroom component that provides a link between the placement setting and the learning process. A faculty member coordinates and supervises the externship program.
