Students doing field placements in The Hague and nearby locations may receive 4-12 units doing legal work for non-profit and government agencies under the supervision of a full-time lawyer. The Hague is the seat of government of the Netherlands and has been called the "legal capital of the world," being the home to many international courts, tribunals, and organizations.
Students will identify and apply to appropriate placements, in coordination with the Field Placement Office. Asa Solway, Berkeley Law '09 and located in The Hague, will maintain contact and organize meetings with students while in the country.
Students who are proposing 10-12 unit placements must receive permission from the Office of Student Services. Students interested in this Program are invited to schedule an advising appointment with Sue Schechter, Field Placement Director, at sschechter.youcanbook.me. Students are directed to https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/away-field-placement/ for additional information.
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.
