4.This section of the course/seminar/clinic fulfills the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR) for JD students and the research requirement for LLM students. EXCEPTION—when the course/seminar is elected by Fall Starters as the first-year elective.

7.STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE FIRST CLASS MEETING OF THIS SEMINAR, PRACTICE/SIMULATION COURSE, OR CLINIC. This policy includes students who enrolled through the Law Course Bidding Interface (CBI) or during the Drop/Add period from the waitlist and those students not enrolled but who are interested in enrolling, whether or not they are on the waitlist. Students who fail to attend the first class meeting WITHOUT making prior arrangements with the professor for an excused absence will have their name removed from the class roster or forfeit their enrollment opportunity. IMPORTANT—IF A STUDENT DECIDES TO DROP A SEMINAR OR CLINIC, S/HE MUST DO SO WITHIN 24 HOURS AFTER THE FIRST CLASS MEETING. This will allow another waitlisted student an expedited opportunity to enroll in the seminar or clinic.
