Here are more details from the school's website:

 "Beginning with the classes starting in Summer of 2014, the experiential learning requirement for students in the traditional 36 month program will be increased to 6 credits; students in the 24-month Accelerated J.D. program will be required to earn 12 credits. All students will continue to be allowed to take up to 15 total credits of experiential learning, the equivalent of one full term."

"'Though the requirement is newly expanded, the students that have already graduated through this curriculum have proven the value of experiential learning, as well as the ability of our Clinic and Externship offices to provide rich and interesting experiences to our students' explained [Dean Jane] Korn. 'The value of experiential learning has already been demonstrated by current students’ participation, which went far above and beyond the existing 3-credit requirement.'"

"Students currently average 8 credits of experiential learning, with many students choosing to participate in both a Clinic internship and Externship experience."
