Environmental Law Clinic
Students who would like to enroll in this Clinic must attend one of the mandatory pre-registration clinic informational meetings held each semester. The dates for these meetings are published in advance in the E-docket. Students must sign in at the mandatory meeting in order to verify their attendance. If a student who has not attended one of the mandatory meetings (either this semester or the immediately preceding semester) registers for this Clinic, that student will be automatically dropped from the class by the Registrar. A dropped student may attempt to re-register after meeting with the appropriate faculty member; however, there is no guarantee that there will be space in the clinic to allow re-enrollment.
Second semester returning students in two-semester clinics will register after the “registration appointment period” concludes. That is, such students will register only during "open enrollment." The Registrar will provide such students with course permission numbers prior to the start of open enrollment to allow them to re-enroll.
Students must be 3Ls.
This is a two semester, full academic year clinic. Students are required to commit to both semesters of the clinic. Students must enroll in the Fall semester. Students will receive a grade at the conclusion of each semester. However, in the event that a student does not complete the second semester, the student shall receive a W for the course, which will nullify the grade for the prior semester.
This course will be graded with a letter grade based on student’s ability to work effectively with clients, development and implementation of the theory of the client to accomplish client goals, reflective skills development, the quality of oral and written advocacy, participation in class and group sessions, professionalism, collaborative skills development, and general competence and diligence in handling client and classroom work.
