Away Field Placements

There are three ways to do an Away Field Placement: Domestic Away, International Away or the Hague.
Students can receive from 10 to 12 units of academic credit for legal work with an approved non-profit or government agency outside the San Francisco/Bay Area.  Students doing Away Field Placements are required to conduct contemporaneous guided reflection in the form of timesheets, memos, and reports throughout the semester. Students must receive academic program approval from the Dean of Students and approval from Field Placement Director. 

For students planning a Spring 2018 Domestic Away, International Away or the Hague placements are required to submit an application and attend the Away Orientation on 11/7/17 in room 170.

A list of approved past Away Field Placements follows. The list reflects Away Field Placements between Fall 2011-Spring 2017.





The Field Placement Program is governed by ABA Standard 304:  Study Outside the Classroom and Berkeley Law Academic Rule 3 – the 295 Series – (c) Limitations.
