The Away Field Placement Workshop is the companion course for students doing field placements with non-profits, government agencies and judicial externships under the supervision of attorneys and judges/law clerks that are not located near the law school. The Workshop is strongly encouraged for students doing Away Placements. The Workshop encourages students to deepen their experiential learning by discussing their experiences with other students and covering topics they will face as legal professionals. This one-unit Workshop does not fulfill the Professional Responsibility Requirement.

The course will meet once per week for seven sessions, and will be scheduled at days and times mutually convenient for students and the instructors.

All placements must be approved by Sue Schechter, the Field Placement Director. Applications and more information are available at:
