Program:

The Bluhm Legal Clinic is the legal clinic of the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. The Clinic serves low-income persons with civil, juvenile and criminal legal problems. PILI Fellows work under the supervision of Clinic faculty on a variety of matters, including juvenile justice, immigration, civil matters, entrepreneurship/economic development issues, and death penalty and criminal cases.

Clinic work provides PILI Fellows with a broad range of experience on relatively simple to complex cases. The goal is to provide each Fellow with significant experiences and feedback in lawyering skills, including interviewing, counseling, case planning, investigation, discovery procedures, negotiation, memorandum and brief writing, trial work, and appellate argument.

This agency is approved to host Graduate Fellows.
