Spring/Summer 2013 Course Descriptions
As of 5/18/2013 3:17:18 AM
Clinic980 Advanced Clinical Law
This graded course is intended to give a few students who have excelled in the Child Advocacy Clinic or Clinical Law I the chance to spend another semester doing casework in the clinic. Students will work under faculty supervision on more complicated cases and will shoulder more of the responsibility for those cases. The course gives students a broader range of litigation experience at a higher level of sophistication than is possible the first time through. Students are enrolled by invitation only, after having expressed interest to one of the clinical faculty or administrators. Faculty and invited students determine the number of credits to be awarded.930 Environmental Law Clinic
The clinic offers hands-on lawyering experience in cases drawn from the judicial, administrative, and legislative dockets of the National Wildlife Federation's Great Lakes Natural Resource Center in Ann Arbor. The Center's resident attorneys supervise students. Students work on a wide range of natural resources and conservation issues, and participate in some of the most significant environmental legal work in the United States. Students may, among other things, visit officials, draft testimony on proposed legislation, prepare pleadings, write an appellate brief, participate in rule-making, or help negotiate a settlement. The clinic is a three-credit-hour offering that students may elect for one or two semesters, for a maximum of six hours. Courses in administrative and environmental law are not prerequisites, but would be helpful. For further information, please contact Neil Kagan, Clinic Director, at 734-887-7106 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
