1.4 Clinic Eligibility and Limits


A student may take a Clinic or Practice Clinic only if they are in good academic standing (not on probation), have passed a minimum of 45 credits, including all first year required courses, all required lawyering seminars, and Constitutional Structures and Evidence. In addition to the above requirements, some Clinics or Practice Clinics may have additional individual pre- or co-requisite course requirements, which must also be met. Students seeking to graduate in three years are expected to take Property and Public Institutions during their second year. A student who has registered for a Clinic, but does not meet these criteria by the first day of the semester in which s/he is scheduled to take the Clinic, will not be able to enroll in that Clinic. A full-time student on probation in the fifth semester, as a result of fourth semester grades, will be required to remain in law school for an extra semester because you will not be able to meet the Clinic requirement in the spring semester. Similarly, a part-time student who has not yet taken a Clinic and who is on probation in the seventh semester, as a result of sixth semester grades, will likely be required to remain in law school for an extra semester because you will not be able to meet the Clinic requirement in the spring semester.
