The course is offered for 4, 5, or 6 credits, with hour requirements of 100, 125, and 150 respectively.
AIDS and the Law is recommended, but not required for enrollment in the clinic. This clinic is offered each semester. Students must be at least in their second semester, second year to take this clinic, because of the requirements of the Student Practice Rules.
