    Civil Field Placements are the field placement component that accompanies the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar or the Field Placement Workshop. Students should go to: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ for a description of the Field Placement Program including a list of approved placements and for a copy of the application. Students may propose their own placements with non-profit or government agencies. Students receive 4-12 units of credit based on legal work under the supervision of a full-time attorney. Students start and end dates are expected to track the academic calendar. Students complete a Field Placement Application, and once it is approved, students will receive a class number for the placement and the required accompanying Seminar or Workshop. The first class meeting of the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar and the Field Placement Workshop is Tuesday, August 17, 2021. Sue Schechter, the Field Placement Director, is available to assist students in identifying appropriate placements. Students may schedule advising appointments through sschechter.youcanbook.me.

    Depending on the public health situation and circumstances of specific placements, we anticipate that some placements may involve remote work during Fall 2021. This will be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Field Placement Program Director.
