The Field Placement Workshop is the companion course for students doing field placements with non-profits and government agencies under the supervision of a full-time attorney. The Workshop will meet throughout the semester. The Workshop encourages students to deepen their field placement learning by discussing their experiences with other students and covering topics they will face as legal professionals. The first required class meeting will be on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 during the first week of classes. The class will meet 6 Tuesday evenings during the semester from 6:25 -8:25pm.

All placements must be approved by the Field Placement Director. Applications and more information is available at: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ .
