    Away Field Placements are the fieldwork component for students to do legal work under the supervision of a full-time attorney for non-profits and government agencies that are not located near the law school. Students may do Away Field Placements for 4 - 12 units after their third semester of law school. Students considering 10-12 unit placements must be approved by the Office of Student Services and the Field Placement Program. In addition, students must have their placements approved by the Field Placement Program Director before they are eligible to receive academic credit. Given the current moment, students doing Away Field Placements generally are required to do a class component - either the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar, the Criminal Law Ethics Seminar or the Field Placement Workshop. Students are directed to: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ for additional information. Students are required to schedule an advising appointment at sschechter.youcanbook.me if they are considering an Away Field Placement.
