The Domestic Violence Field Placement classroom component is the 2-unit required companion course to the Domestic Violence Field Placement, where students work in non-profit and government agencies under the supervision of attorneys to receive academic credit. Students will gain exposure and have opportunities to explore professional responsibility issues, especially as they arise in their internships. Students will be urged to reflect on their placements and incorporate the skills they are learning into the classroom discussions.

The classroom component meets the law school's Professional Responsibility requirement.

The classroom component will include time to discuss the readings on Professional Responsibility and domestic violence issues. There will also be time for students to discuss their work and ask questions of the instructor and each other. While enhancing our understanding of domestic violence laws in real life, we will keep a critical eye on developing our capacity to work with trauma-exposure responses, increasing self-awareness and appreciation for a diversity of experiences with cultural humility and intellectual curiosity.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
