Students who enroll in the Children & Families Clinic, the Criminal Justice Clinic or the Environmental and Land Use Law Clinic may become authorized as Certified Legal Interns (CLIs). Please carefully note the Florida Board of Bar Examiners (FBBE) new rule regarding the Certified Legal Internship (CLI) program if you are planning to participate in a clinical semester during your final year of law school. Please file your bar application early, preferably your first year of law school, as you must receive an initial clearance letter from the FBBE to be eligible for the CLI program.
