Attorney Supervised/Clinical Training is completed in law office and courtroom settings and can provide legal training and experience in a law practice.

Several states allow all or part bar admission eligibility to be met by Attorney Supervised Study/Apprenticeship (law office study). Further, several states may allow admission for non-ABA graduates if they complete an LLM from an ABA school.
