Clinical Program

The Disability Clinic operates in conjunction with Indiana Legal Services, Inc. in providing quality legal assistance to low-income individuals while also providing law student interns the opportunity to engage in actual case representation. The Disability Clinic, in particular, represents persons with long-term, disabling conditions in obtaining or maintaining government benefits before the Social Security Administration. The Civil Practice Clinic also represents clients with physical or mental disabilities, though that is not its primary focus.

Other Information

The Health Law Society provides a forum in which students and faculty can become informed about medical and legal issues, including topics in disability law and disability rights. Activities of the Health Law Society include panel discussions and colloquia, sponsored in cooperation with the school's nationally-ranked Hall-Render Center for Law and Health.
