1.This course, seminar, or clinic grade basis is mandatory limited grade (pass/fail) or “S” grade.

8.

This clinic, seminar, or practice/simulation course requires students to follow specific procedures during the active registration cycle or forfeit their enrollment opportunity:

  • Cycle ONE--Clinic Bidding--requires students to request the clinic via the Law Course Bidding Interface (CBI). For clinic information or clinic waitlist questions, please contact the Clinic Coordinator, clinic-applications@umich.edu.
  • Cycle TWO--Seminar and Practice/Simulation Course Bidding--requires students to complete TWO steps: (1) request the seminar or practice/simulation course via the Law Course Bidding Interface (CBI) AND (2) follow the “time sensitive” special sign-up procedure listed in the term specific online Registration Instructions. The Registration Instructions are located on the Office of the Registrar web site, click “Registration” in the left-hand column, click “Registration Instructions” in the middle column (http://www.law.umich.edu/currentstudents/registration/registration/Pages/default.aspx).


9.This clinic, seminar, or practice/simulation course has been designated a “Prof Pick.”
  • Cycle ONE--Clinic Bidding--during the CBI Clinic processing, admission is by permission of the professor. The professor retrieves a list of students who requested the clinic and makes selections. If possible, the clinic coordinator assigns the selected students. NOTE--CBI limits class assignment to a maximum of ONE clinic. Students assigned to the clinics are uploaded into CBI and their 15 credit maximum is reduced by the clinic credits before the Seminar and Practice/Simulation Course registration period begins. During the Wolverine Access Drop/Add period, admission to this clinic off the waitlist is also by permission of the professor and not according to waitlist order. If a seat is available, the professor makes a selection from the waitlist. The clinic coordinator contacts the curriculum coordinator who creates an individual “time sensitive” permission code and e-mails the selected student so they can enroll themselves via Wolverine Access. For clinic information or clinic waitlist questions, please contact the Clinic Coordinator, clinic-applications@umich.edu.
  • Cycle TWO--Seminar and Practice/Simulation Course Bidding--during the CBI Seminar and Practice/Simulation Course processing, admission is by permission of the professor. The professor retrieves a list of students who requested the class and makes selections. If possible, the curriculum coordinator assigns the selected students. NOTE--CBI limits class assignment to a maximum of ONE seminar and ONE practice/simulation course. During the Wolverine Access Drop/Add period, admission to this seminar or practice/simulation course off the waitlist is also by permission of the professor and not according to waitlist order. If a seat is available, the professor makes a selection from the waitlist and contacts the curriculum coordinator who creates an individual “time sensitive” permission code and e-mails the selected student so they can enroll themselves via Wolverine Access.


10.Students selected via CBI will be enrolled in both the clinic and related “seminar.” Students selected and notified during the Drop/Add period must use Wolverine Access to enroll themselves in both the clinic and related seminar.

36.LLM students are not eligible to elect this clinic unless they previously earned a JD degree from an American Bar Association (ABA) approved law school in the U.S.

37.Winter Term--First-year students (Fall Starters) cannot elect this practice/simulation course, clinic, or research course.

38. Winter Term--First-year students (Summer Starters) cannot elect this clinic.

48.Once enrolled in a clinic, the expectation is the student will remain in the clinic so client assignments can be made. However, a student who needs to drop the clinic must email the professor and request a drop with a brief explanation of the reason for it. A student who drops a first or second choice clinic may reduce their chances of acceptance into a clinic in future semesters!
