    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.
  3. 8

    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.

  4. 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.

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.

  8. 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.
  9. 213

    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 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.

  4. 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.
