Student organizations

Student opportunities


The law school offers seven legal clinics, or programs that allow students to attain practical legal experience through providing legal services to real clients.[12]

  • Appellate Advocacy Clinic - Students represent clients in a variety of appellate courts, including the Fourth Circuit and the Seventh Circuit. Students handle an actual appeal from start to finish, with advice and assistance from their professor, who is counsel of record. Students also travel to Washington, D.C., to observe arguments at the United States Supreme Court.[13]
  • Child Advocacy Clinic - Students represent children in custody disputes, domestic violence situations, and in issues involving the public school system.[14]
  • Community Law and Business Clinic - A new program, this clinic provides law and graduate business students with an opportunity to develop skills needed to practice in the increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment they will encounter as professionals.[15]
  • Innocence and Justice Clinic - This clinic has its origins in the Innocence Project in which Wake Forest students review and investigate claims of innocence to determine whether DNA evidence existed that could exonerate inmates.[16]
  • Civil & Criminal Externship Clinic - Formerly referred to as the Litigation Clinic, students have the opportunity to receive real world practice experience by working with local attorneys. During the semester, all students receive civil placements with local firms, in-house counsel offices, and the Office of the United States Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina. Students also spend half of their semester working in a criminal placement. These placements have included private firms as well as prosecutors' and public defenders' offices.[17]
  • Veterans Legal Clinic - Students work with former military services members to upgrade their discharge statuses. The lengthy process involves submitting briefs to the pertinent military discharge review board.


According to Wake Forest's official ABA-required disclosures, 84.8% of the Class of 2016 obtained full-time, long-term, Bar-required or JD Advantage employment within 10 months after graduation.[18]
