Senior BSW and Foundation MSW students provide direct case management services to clients and for attorneys and clients in collaboration with Legal Services.
Working collaboratively, students from the university's schools of Law, Professional Psychology and Social Work strive to meet the needs of underserved people as they gain valuable real-world experience in their chosen fields of study. Additionally, Social Work Doctoral students will have the opportunity to do an IPC Experiential Practicum to learn about the practice and competencies of Interprofessional Education (IPE) with a view toward how these principles can be used to promote collaboration in the academy.
