LAWS 8979 Civil Litigation Clinic Class (Fall/Spring: 2 )

Course Description

Students enrolled in the Civil Litigation Clinic also participate in a weekly seminar where issues related to students' actual cases are examined. The practical, legal and ethical issues of lawyering are explored in detail through discussion, simulations, and review of video recorded portions of students' meetings with their clients. In addition to class participation, students draft four reaction papers during the term, reflecting on their lawyering, systemic challenges, and social justice issues which they have observed. Students receive the same grade for both their clinic and seminar work. Pass/fail can only be exercised at the beginning of the term. Selection by lottery.
