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 attorneys. The Seminar is open to 2L, 3L and LLM students who have participated in a civil law-related experiential learning opportunity - summer internship, SLPS/Pro Bono Project, law school clinic, etc. to meet the Professional Responsibility (PR) requirement. For questions about eligibility and course coverage, please contact Sue Schechter, Field Placement Director, sschechter@law.berkeley.edu.

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, August 20, 2024.
