The Clinic also works with a University of Arizona undergraduate student who is placed in the Clinic as an intern, for credit.

During the summer, the Staff Attorney will assist in representing clients in veterans treatment courts, with or without students. The Staff Attorney may also assist in the supervision of the undergraduate student, who typically acts as the Intake and Referral Program Coordinator.
