View all teaching evaluations for this course
In this course students work on real cases, either at faculty-supervised field placements or under the direct supervision of Nancy Lemon, DVP Director, while enrolled in a classroom component taught by Ms. Lemon.
Students may choose a placement at one of various legal agencies in the Bay Area. The work focuses on restraining orders, family law, welfare, immigration, employment issues, prosecution of batterers, or post-conviction issues of battered women in state prisons. Students also work with the instructor on policy matters, including writing amicus briefs.
At the placements, students interview clients; draft restraining orders, memoranda, and motions; represent clients at hearings; argue motions; and research policy issues. They may also attend meetings with attorneys, government officials, judges and legislators.
If you are the instructor or their FSU, you may add a file like a syllabus or a first assignment to this page.
