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

2.This course/seminar/clinic is graded and may not be taken on an elective (you choose) limited grade option (pass/fail) basis. This course/seminar/clinic grade may not be converted from a letter grade to a “P” grade.

3.This course fulfills the professional responsibility requirement for graduation applicable to all students.

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.

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 Lou Anne Betts (bettylou@umich.edu), 734-764-4533.
  • Cycle TWO--Seminar or 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 on-line Registration Instructions. The Registration Instructions are located on the Office of the Registrar web site, “Registration” in the left-hand column, “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 Lou Anne Betts (bettylou@umich.edu), 734-764-4533.

  • Cycle TWO--Seminar or 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.

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 admitted to a clinic, a student may only drop that clinic with permission of one of the professors who teach that clinic.  Students who wish to drop must email the professor teaching the clinic requesting the drop and briefly explaining the reasons for it.  Professor-permitted drops of a student's first or second choice clinic may reduce the student's chances of being accepted into a clinic in future semesters.
