Away Field Placement: Bay Area is the fieldwork component for students who are living in the Bay Area and whose field placements are located remotely/away from the Bay Area. Students who meet this criteria will be required to take one of the accompanying in-person field placement class components: Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar, Criminal Law Ethics Seminar, Judicial Externship 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, a list of approved placements and 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/end dates are expected to track the academic calendar. Students must 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 for the Field Placement Seminars (Civil and Criminal) and Workshop will be on Tuesday, January 11. The first class meeting for the Judicial Externship Seminar will be on Friday, January 14. 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 Spring 2022. This will be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Field Placement Program Director.
