Environmental Field Placements are the field placement component that accompanies the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar or the Field Placement Workshop. Students should see: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ for a description of the Field Placement Program including application instructions and list of approved environmental field placements or they may propose their own placements with non-profits or government agencies working in the environmental field. Students receive 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 an application available on the website and once it is approved, they will receive their class numbers for the placement and the accompanying Seminar or Workshop. The first class meeting of the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar and the Field Placement Workshop are Tuesday, January 11, 2022. Sue Schechter, the Field Placement Director is available to help students identify appropriate placements. Please go to: sschechter.youcanbook.me to schedule an appointment.
Depending on the public health situation and circumstances of specific placements, we anticipate that some placements may involve remote work during Spring 2022. This will be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Field Placement Program Director.
