There are five ways to do an Away Field Placement:
- Domestic Away
- International Away
- Berkeley Law in The Hague
- United Nations Human Rights (UNHR) Program
- The UCDC Law Program
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 2020 Domestic Away, International Away or UNHR placements are required to submit an application as soon as possible. Below is a list of previously approved Away Field Placements between Fall 2011 and Fall 2019. This list is not exhaustive, and students are encouraged to discuss new placement ideas with Sue Schechter.
