The Centers of Excellence at the School of Law allow for collaborative and synergistic academic ventures among faculty and students, and encourage programs and research that benefit the law profession as well as the larger community.

The Milton A. Kramer Law Clinic Center is an in-house, real client clinic where third-year students provide legal services to people who can't afford to hire an attorney. The law students provide hands on expertise as the primary legal counsel for the clients from start to finish.

Law students also provide support to the community beyond legal representation through the Big Buddies Program. Once a week, "little buddies" from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District's Mary Bethune Elementary and Harry Davis Junior High schools are bussed to the law school. They are mentored by law students, spend time on schoolwork, and participate in recreational activities. Read more.
