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

4.This section of the course, seminar, or clinic fulfills the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR) for JD students and the research requirement for LLM students.  EXCEPTION—Fall Starters who take the upper class course/seminar as the first-year elective do not fulfill the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR) for JD 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 PRACTICE/SIMULATION COURSE, S/HE MUST DO SO WITHIN 24 HOURS AFTER THE FIRST CLASS MEETING. This will allow another waitlisted student an expedited opportunity to enroll.

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.
