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.

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

18.All students are enrolled in the upper class course exam section (001).  The student must receive permission from the professor before they can request enrollment in the “paper option” section (002).  EXCEPTION--Fall Starters who take the upper class course as their first-year elective have no choice and must take the exam!  For those students who do qualify, the paper option fulfills the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR) for JD students and the research requirement for LLM students.  To request enrollment in the paper option section, please refer to footnote #19.

40.#800 SEMINAR SUPPLEMENT: This is a TWO step registration process: (1) make arrangements with the professor to write a longer seminar paper or do other additional work to receive additional credit AND (2) refer to the Registration Instructions, Section V: 800 Seminar Supplement, for directions. Points of Clarification: (1) #800 SEMINAR SUPPLEMENT on its own does not fulfill the upper-level writing requirement (2) whether or not to permit a student to enroll for the 800 Seminar Supplement is entirely the decision of the faculty member teaching the seminar.

41.Laptop use during class sessions is not permitted!

42. A seminar listed at three (3) credits is not eligible for the additional #800 SEMINAR SUPPLEMENT credit.

43.The time listed for this class is PM.

44.This seminar, either because it is for only one (1) credit or at the request of the professor, is not eligible for the additional #800 SEMINAR SUPPLEMENT credit.

45.#947 GENEVA EXTERNSHIP and #948 GENEVA EXTERNSHIP SEMINAR:  Information concerning the Geneva Externship Program is available from the Center for International and Comparative Studies, 300D Legal Research.  The #948 Geneva Externship Seminar does not fulfill the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR) for JD students.  Students must be registered in both #947 Geneva Externship and #948 Geneva Externship Seminar.

46.To choose the three (3) credit section of this seminar which fulfills the upper-level writing requirement students must complete TWO steps: (1) seek the professor’s permission to switch seminar sections AND (2) request enrollment in the three credit ULWR section of the seminar by sending an e-mail to LawCurriculumCoordinator@umich.edu and make “Three Credit ULWR Section” the subject line.

The e-mail should contain the following information:

  • 5-digit class number of the section to drop (the section in which you are enrolled)
  • 5-digit class number of the section to add (the section displaying footnote #4)
  • Term in which you are making the section change


47.This clinic is a year-long commitment so students enrolled for the fall term will automatically be enrolled for the winter term. No additional students will be added during the winter term.

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!

49.Students are required to attend the first class meeting of the #990 Part-time Externship/#991 Part-time Externship Seminar.  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.

50.Students do not bid for the #990 Part-time Externship/#991Part-time Externship Seminar using the CBI system. Instead, a student seeking to enroll in the class must submit a resume and a short statement of interest to Professor Sankaran (aharwell@umich.edu) as early as the beginning of the CBI registration period and no later than May 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the winter semester. The statement must include:

1) Name of placement or proposed placement;
2) How the proposed placement furthers his or her academic and professional goals;
3) A description of the work the student will be doing at his or her placement;
4) If the placement is already secured, a) name, phone number, and email of supervisor or other appropriate contact, and b) work schedule; and,
5) If the placement is not yet secured, what steps the student will take to secure the placement.

Permission to enroll in this class is granted exclusively by Professor Sankaran during the weeks prior to the semester in which the externship will take place. Students must have their placements finalized no later than one week prior to the first day of the semester.

Students may not take #990 Part-time Externship/#991Part-time Externship Seminar and be enrolled in a clinic during the same semester.


51.#635 CORPORATE FINANCE and #650 CORPORATE FINANCE TUTORIAL:  Because Law 635 and Law 650 are so closely related, when both classes are offered in the same term, these two classes are treated as a single class for purposes of converting a letter grade to a "Pass."  This does not obligate any student to convert a letter grade to a P in both classes.  Rather, students may exercise conversion option for neither, one or both classes.

52.#606 TRANSNATIONAL LAW:  Students who enrolled at the Law School during Spring/Summer 2011 or later must take Law 606 during their third or fourth term.
