Civil Field Placements are the fieldwork component that accompanies the Civil Field Placement Ethics 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 including a list of approved placements and for 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 an attorney. Students' start and end dates are expected to track the academic calendar. Students 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 of the Civil Field Placement Ethics Seminar and the Field Placement Workshop is Tuesday, August 22, 2023. LL.M. students are required to be enrolled in the Practical Lawyering Certificate and take the 1-unit Fall Professional Identity in U.S. Public and Private Sector Practice class to be eligible for a spring field placement.
Sue Schechter, the Field Placement Director, is available to assist students in identifying appropriate placements. Students may schedule advising appointments through sschechter.youcanbook.me.
