Public Interest Field Placement – 7623
This course provides an opportunity for students to work with and learn from lawyers in government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and public interest law firms. The instructor and student will work together to find an appropriate placement that matches the student’s interests and host’s needs. Students who have already secured field placements in the public interest can also enroll.
Enrollment occurs through an application outside of the lottery process. If you are interested in participating, please contact the instructor by email as early as possible with a short explanation of: (1) why you are interested in pursuing a public interest field placement; (2) the kind of work that interests you; and (3) whether you have an interest in and/or relationships
with a specific potential host organization.
All students seeking to enroll in a field placement must carefully read the Rules for Supervised Field Placements.
Grading will be on the H/P/LP/F basis. All placements will be structured to satisfy the Experiential Learning graduation requirement.
