I am using ArcMap 10.1 and would like to label a polygon layer that i have clipped. It appears that the label is set for the geometric center of the polygon that falls outside of the clipping.

    Did you re-export the clipped feature class/shapefile? – Maksim Dec 22 '15 at 18:21

    export the resultant clipped features into a new feature class or shapefile, then the labeling should take into account the new geometries – Maksim Dec 22 '15 at 18:35

Once you clip the polygon you should export it to a new shapefile or import it to a feature class inside of a geodatabase and you should be fine. The clip tool (analysis) will make this unnecessary but from what you are explaining I suspect you are using Clip in Editor as this should not happen with Clip in a tool.
