A lawyer with over a decade of experience, Jake Posey represents business and government clients as the owner of The Posey Law Firm, PC, in Austin, Texas. In preparation for his career as an attorney, Jake Posey earned his law degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law – now Texas A&M University School of Law.
In addition to providing education through classroom lectures and discussions, Texas A&M University School of Law offers a variety of experiential learning programs to give students hands-on experience in a variety of areas. One of the ways that the school helps students apply their knowledge is by offering several legal services clinics.
Currently, Texas A&M School of Law oversees eleven clinics in practice areas such as criminal defense, family law, and immigration law. The school also operates clinics focused on intellectual property, wills and estates, and community development.
Through the clinics, Texas A&M law students have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients, including entrepreneurs and business leaders, government agencies, and nonprofit groups. Students can also help individuals in need by participating in the school’s low-income tax clinic or the Innocence Project, which investigates valid claims of innocence from inmates in the Texas prison system.
Along with gaining valuable experience and improving their knowledge and skills, those who take part in one of Texas A&M’s legal clinics earn credits toward graduation. The number of credits offered depends on the clinic and the time required of students each week.
