Handling Cases

The first few weeks in the clinic are typically difficult for new students.  The case management software and office procedures must be learned, tax terminology mastered, facts associated with cases understood, etc. Thus, working in the clinic is unlike attending and studying for other law school classes. You are expected to quickly engage in the clinic so that clients receive the appropriate services. You will assist clients with tax issues that have significant consequences to them. Deadlines are of critical importance (especially with regard to statutory notices), and keeping clients closely informed is essential to maintaining a good working relationship.
