This is an advanced clinical course for students who have already taken the Samuelson Clinic in previous semesters. Course enrollment is by permission of the instructor. There is no final for this course.

Advanced Clinic students work on projects that vary in scope and size. They may work alone, with other advanced students, or on a team with first-time Clinic students. Advanced projects can range from follow-on work on an ongoing Clinic project (often a project the advanced student previously worked on in the Clinic), to a new, full-blown project on a new topic. Regardless of the nature of the project, advanced Clinic students are expected to act as informal mentors for first-time Clinic students. Depending on the project, advanced Clinic students can receive anywhere from 1 to 4 units of credit for their Clinic work.

Advanced clinic students may also be required to participate in the case-rounds and workshop portions of the Clinic seminar (generally between 5 and 6 seminar sessions throughout the semester). For advanced students who are working on a 1- to 2-unit project, workshop/case rounds participation is optional. All other advanced students are expected to participate in the workshops and case rounds. In addition to the 1-4 units of credit they receive for their Clinic work, advanced students who participate in case rounds and workshop discussions will receive up to one additional unit of credit for their limited participation in the seminar. Students interested in joining the advanced Clinic should keep the seminar time open.

As with first-time Clinic students, advanced students work on ongoing and active legal matters and are asked not to do outside legal work”such as a legal internships with a judge, a law firm, or a legal organization”while working on Clinic matters. Non-legal work may be permitted on a case-by-case basis; you must discuss any plans for non-legal work with an instructor in advance. For additional information on the Clinic’s work, practices and policies, please refer to samuelsonclinic.org or contact one of the Clinic’s instructors.
