Unemployment Insurance Clinic - Supervision and Litigation Seminar

This seven-credit graded, course allows students who excelled in the Unemployment Insurance Clinic I to move beyond administrative hearings to more complex oral and written advocacy. Students work on more complex Unemployment Insurance (UI) cases, appellate briefs and also provide peer support to first year students taking either UIC I or Legal Practice-UIC. Students are assigned multiple cases, and at least one appellate brief each term in addition to peer support of several 1L student teams. Students are enrolled by invitation only, after having expressed interest to the UIC professor.

UIC Supervision and Litigation and Seminar is a 7 credit course and meets the New York Pro-Bono requirement. Students must enroll in the 2 credit seminar and the 5 credit field component, taken concurrently. The 2 credit seminar and 5 credit field component are mandatory graded and ineligible for letter grade conversion to pass ("P") election. The Clinic fulfills the Law School's professional responsibility requirement for graduation, but does not fulfill the New York State Bar ethics requirement. For students who matriculated in or after May 2016, the Clinic can either fulfill the upper-level writing requirement or the credits can count toward the Experiential Learning requirement, but not both. The Clinic fulfills the Statutory or Regulatory Course Distribution Requirement for graduation applicable to JD students who matriculated in May 2016 and thereafter.
