    This clinic, seminar, practice simulation, or Problem Solving Initiative (PSI) course requires students to submit supplemental materials (e.g., resume, statement of interest) in addition to either placing a bid in the Law School's class bidding system -- during an active bidding session -- or adding to the waitlist in Wolverine Access during the Drop/Add period.

    Specific submission requirements are described in the Law School's class bidding system -- during an active bidding session -- and/or the term document "Prof Pick" Classes Requiring Supplemental Materials located on the Law School's Office of Student Records website, under Classes and Registration / Registering for Classes.

    This clinic, seminar, practice simulation, or Problem Solving Initiative (PSI) course has been designated a “prof pick.” PSI administrators select students for PSI courses. Clinic administration determines all clinic assignments. Priorities cannot be used on clinic bids. Priorities can, however, be utilized (and spent) on bids for "prof pick" seminars, practice simulations, and PSI courses in the Law School's class bidding system. During an active bidding cycle, the professor or PSI administrator selects the pool of students from which the class bidding system then considers for assignment based on priority usage, proximity to graduation, and student request queue order (i.e., the professor or PSI administrator selects the candidates, but class assignment is by computer selection). During the Wolverine Access Drop/Add period, admission to a "prof pick" class off the waitlist is by permission of the professor or PSI administrator and not according to waitlist order.

    STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE FIRST CLASS MEETING OF THIS SEMINAR, PRACTICE SIMULATION, PROBLEM SOLVING INITIATIVE COURSE, OR CLINIC. This policy includes students who enrolled through the Law School's class bidding system 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. IF A STUDENT DECIDES TO DROP A SEMINAR, PRACTICE SIMULATION, OR PROBLEM SOLVING INITIATIVE COURSE, DO SO WITHIN 24 HOURS AFTER THE FIRST CLASS MEETING. This will allow another waitlisted student an expedited opportunity to enroll.

    This clinic, seminar, practice simulation, or Problem Solving Initiative (PSI) course requires students to submit supplemental materials (e.g., resume, statement of interest) in addition to either placing a bid in the Law School's class bidding system -- during an active bidding session -- or adding to the waitlist in Wolverine Access during the Drop/Add period.

    Specific submission requirements are described in the Law School's class bidding system -- during an active bidding session -- and/or the term document "Prof Pick" Classes Requiring Supplemental Materials located on the Law School's Office of Student Records website, under Classes and Registration / Registering for Classes.

  5. 9
    This clinic, seminar, practice simulation, or Problem Solving Initiative (PSI) course has been designated a “prof pick.” PSI administrators select students for PSI courses. Clinic administration determines all clinic assignments. Priorities cannot be used on clinic bids. Priorities can, however, be utilized (and spent) on bids for "prof pick" seminars, practice simulations, and PSI courses in the Law School's class bidding system. During an active bidding cycle, the professor or PSI administrator selects the pool of students from which the class bidding system then considers for assignment based on priority usage, proximity to graduation, and student request queue order (i.e., the professor or PSI administrator selects the candidates, but class assignment is by computer selection). During the Wolverine Access Drop/Add period, admission to a "prof pick" class off the waitlist is by permission of the professor or PSI administrator and not according to waitlist order.
  6. 36
    LLM students are not eligible to elect this clinic unless they previously earned a JD degree from an American Bar Association (ABA) approved law school in the U.S.
  7. 47
    This class is a year-long commitment, so students enrolled for the fall term will automatically be enrolled for the winter term. No additional students will be added during the winter term.
  8. 48
    Once admitted to a clinic, the expectation is the student will remain in the clinic so client assignments can be made. However, a student who needs to drop the clinic must email the professor and request a drop with a brief explanation of the reason for it. A student who drops a first or second choice clinic may reduce their chances of acceptance into a clinic in future semesters!
  9. 69
    Although this course can fulfill more than one requirement for graduation, students who matriculated in or after May 2016 must take a separate course to fulfill each of the following requirements: a) upper-level course with a rigorous writing component; b) professional responsibility course of two or more credit hours; and c) two credit hours of experiential learning. A clinic or externship of less than 7 credits with more than one component (e.g., clinic and clinic field) is considered as one course.

  10. 91
    Credits earned for this experiential course or clinic count toward the six (6) credits needed to fulfill the Experiential Learning requirement for graduation applicable to JD students who matriculated in May 2016 and thereafter.
  11. 99
    This course fulfills the International or Comparative Law Distribution Requirement for graduation applicable to JD students who matriculated in May 2015 and thereafter.
  12. 100
    #906 INTERNATIONAL TRANSACTIONS CLINIC: For the first six weeks of the term, this clinic will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays; thereafter, it will meet only on Tuesdays for the remainder of the term.
  13. 180
    This course, clinic, or externship can either fulfill the Law School's professional responsibility requirement for graduation or the credits can count toward the Experiential Learning requirement, but not both.
