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: a href=https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply//a for a description of the Field Placement Program, 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, August 23. The day-long orientation for the Judicial Externship Seminar will be on Friday, August 26 (student may not have any conflicts), and then the class will meet on Tuesdays during the semester.
