(Pre-requisites and co-requisites are included when applicable.)

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.

12.This course is limited in size.

39.This seminar is offered for two (2) credits.  However, the professor has the option of allowing students to write a longer seminar paper or do other additional work to receive an additional credit.  Any student making such an arrangement with the professor must enroll in #800 SEMINAR SUPPLEMENT.  See footnote #40.  EXCEPTION—Beginning Winter 2010, when Fall Starters elect the seminar as the first-year elective NO additional credit is allowed.
