Default Law Students Learn by Doing at the Supreme Court

George Mason University School of Law, based in Fairfax, Va., has a new clinic dedicated to the Supreme Court.

George Mason University School of Law, based in Fairfax, Va., has a new clinic dedicated to the Supreme Court, in which students research issues, draft briefs and consult with the lawyer presenting the case to the highest court in the nation, AP reports.

The school’s website describes the clinic as providing pro bono legal representation before the U.S. Supreme Court, as students work with attorneys from Wiley Rein, a D.C.-based firm, to identify cases of interest and do the necessary research and briefs.

Several schools across the country offer similar courses, after Stanford University started the trend in 2004. Harvard, Yale, New York University, Northwestern, University of Virginia, University of Pennsylvania, and University of Texas all have similar programs, and clinics say students have been involved in about one out of every six cases before the court, AP noted.
