    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.
  5. 12
    This course or seminar is limited in size.
  6. 35
    Winter Term--First-year JD students may elect this course/seminar/clinic as an optional first-year elective.
  7. 39
    This seminar is offered for two (2) credits. However, the professor has the option of allowing students to do additional work to receive an additional credit. In many instances, this additional work will entail writing a longer seminar paper. Any student making such an arrangement with the professor must enroll in #900 RESEARCH. To request enrollment in Law 900 Research, refer to the Enrolling for Research instructions on the Law School's Office of Student Records website.
  8. 99
    This course fulfills the International or Comparative Law Distribution Requirement for graduation applicable to JD students who matriculated in May 2015 and thereafter.

    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.
  5. 10
    Students selected via the Law School's class bidding system will be enrolled in both the clinic and related “seminar.” Students selected and notified during the Drop/Add period must use Wolverine Access to enroll themselves in both the clinic and related seminar.

    Winter Term--First-year JD students cannot elect this course section, seminar, mini-seminar, research course, or clinic.

    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. 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.

    Students selected via the Law School's class bidding system will be enrolled in both the clinic and related “seminar.” Students selected and notified during the Drop/Add period must use Wolverine Access to enroll themselves in both the clinic and related seminar.
  9. 41
    Laptop use during class sessions is not permitted.
  10. 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!

    This section of the course, seminar, or clinic fulfills the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR) for JD students and the research requirement for LLM students. EXCEPTION—Second semester first-year JD students who take the course/seminar as an elective do not fulfill the law upper-level writing requirement (LUWR).
  2. 7
    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.
  5. 12
    This course or seminar is limited in size.
  6. 39
    This seminar is offered for two (2) credits. However, the professor has the option of allowing students to do additional work to receive an additional credit. In many instances, this additional work will entail writing a longer seminar paper. Any student making such an arrangement with the professor must enroll in #900 RESEARCH. To request enrollment in Law 900 Research, refer to the Enrolling for Research instructions on the Law School's Office of Student Records website.
  7. 99
    This course fulfills the International or Comparative Law Distribution Requirement for graduation applicable to JD students who matriculated in May 2015 and thereafter.
