The Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar is the two-unit graded companion course to Civil and Environmental Field Placements, where students are eligible for academic credit for legal work in non-profit and government agencies under the supervision of full-time attorneys. Students who are not doing a spring field placement but have done a law clerk position or a law-related experiential learning opportunity - summer internship, SLPS/Pro Bono Project, law school clinic, etc are eligible to take this Seminar to meet the Professional Responsibility (PR) requirement. The Seminar's goal is to provide students with an opportunity to explore professional responsibility topics in an experiential learning environment. In the Seminar, students conduct readings, discuss hypotheticals, do presentations, and meet with guest speakers on relevant professional responsibility and field placement topics. The Seminar will meet on Tuesday evenings during the semester with the first required class meeting on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.
