Criminal Field Placements are the fieldwork component that accompanies the course component of Criminal Law Ethics Seminar or the Field Placement Workshop. Students should see: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ for a description of the Field Placement Program including how to apply and a list of approved placements or they may propose their own placements with criminal law non-profit or government agencies. Students receive 4-12 units of credit based on the number of hours they do 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, they receive their class numbers for the Program and the accompanying required Seminar or Workshop. The first class meeting for the class components is Tuesday, January 9, 2024. 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 contact sschechter.youcanbook.me to schedule an advising appointment.
