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 Priority Registration System (PRS) 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 seminar, practice/simulation course, or clinc requires that students follow specific registration procedures:

§      A seminar or practice/simulation course requires students to complete TWO-steps:  (1) students must follow the “time sensitive” special sign-up procedure listed in the Registration Instructions and (2)   students must request the seminar or practice/simulation course via the Priority Registration System (PRS) during Round One.  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-introduction.htm).  

§      A clinic requires students to complete and submit a Live Client Clinic Programs Application.  The application is available by:  (1) e-mail from Lou Anne Betts (bettylou@umich.edu), (2) in hard copy format at each of the clinics, or (3) by printing a hard copy on the Office of the Registrar web site, click “Registration” in the left-hand column, click “Live Client Clinic Programs Application” in the leftcolumn (http://www.law.umich.edu/currentstudents/registration/registration-introduction.htm).   Students must return the completed application to Lou Anne Betts (bettylou@umich.edu), 727 Legal Research, no later than the deadline listed at the top of the application.  

 

9.        This seminar, practice/simulation course, or clinic has been designated a “Prof Pick.”  During PRS Round One processing, admission into this seminar, practice/simulation course, or clinic is by permission of the professor.  The professor receives a list of students who requested the class and makes selections.  The curriculum coordinator enrolls the selected students.  During the Wolverine Access Drop/Add period, admission to this seminar, practice/simulation course, or clinic off the waitlist is also by permission of the professor and not according to waitlist order.  If seats are available, the professor makes selections from the waitlist and contacts the curriculum coordinator who creates individual “time sensitive” permission codes and e-mails the selected students so they can enroll themselves via Wolverine Access.
