Civil Field Placements are the field placement component that accompanies the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar (295). Students should see: http://www.law.berkeley.edu/170/htm for a description of the Field Placement Program including a list of approved placements or they may propose their own placements with non-profit or government agencies. Students receive credit based on legal work under the supervision of attorney when they do 4 hours/week over a 14 week semester and they are generally required to work 16 hours/week or 224 hours over the course of the semester. Civil Field Placements are graded on a Credit/No Credit basis. Students start and end dates are expected to track the academic calendar. Students complete a Field Placement Application available at: http://www.law.berkeley.edu/2813.htm, and once it is approved, students will receive a course control number for the Placement and the required accompanying Seminar. The Field Placement Director is available to assist students in identifying appropriate placements.
