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. Students doing Away Field Placements are being strongly encouraged to do a class component. 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.
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.
