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.

    To be considered for an open seat during the Drop/Add period, place your name on the waitlist in Wolverine Access and send a statement of interest to the e-mail address indicated in the term-specific online Registration Instructions.

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.

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.

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

  • 5-digit class number of the section to add (the section displaying footnote #4)

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:

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,

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.
