There are four ways to do an Away Field Placement:
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 Fall 2018 Domestic Away, International Away or the Hague placements are required to submit an application as soon as possible. Below is a list of previously approved Away Field Placements between Fall 2011-Spring 2017. This list is not exhaustive- students are also encouraged to discuss new placement ideas with Sue Schechter.
