LAW 1246 v01: Representing Delinquent Youth from Incarceration through Reentry (PROJECT-BASED PRACTICUM)
Representing Delinquent Youth from Incarceration through Reentry
T 1:20-3:20p
Paper and Special Requirement


J.D. students must complete the required first-year program prior to enrolling in this course (part-time and interdivisional transfer students may enroll prior to completing Criminal Justice, Property, or their first-year elective).


Courses: Family Law II, Professional Responsibility.

Students may not take another practicum course or a clinic at the same time as a project-based practicum course. Students may enroll in an externship at the same time as a project-based practicum course.

This practicum course is open to LL.M. students, space permitting.
Evening students who work during the day are encouraged to reach out to the professors to discuss whether this practicum course would be compatible with their schedules.
THIS COURSE REQUIRES PROFESSOR PERMISSION TO ENROLL. Students must submit a resume and statement of interest (one page double-spaced), explaining his or her interest in the course to Professor Whitney Louchheim ( by May 18, 2020.
This is a four credit course. Students will receive two credits for the seminar and two credits for the supervised project work. Both the seminar portion and the fieldwork will be graded.
Students who enroll in this course will be automatically enrolled in both the seminar and project components and may not take either component separately. After Add/Drop, a student who wishes to withdraw from a practicum course must obtain permission from the faculty member and the Assistant Dean for Experiential Education. The Assistant Dean will grant such withdrawal requests only when remaining enrolled in the practicum would cause significant hardship for the student. A student who is granted permission to withdraw will be withdrawn from both the seminar and project components.
Default attendance rule for all practicum courses (unless the professor indicates otherwise): Regular and punctual attendance is required at all practicum seminars and fieldwork placements. Students in project-based practicum courses are similarly required to devote the requisite number of hours to their project. If a student must miss seminar, fieldwork, or project work, he or she must speak to the professor as soon as possible to discuss the absence. Unless the professor indicates otherwise, a student with more than one unexcused absence from the practicum seminar (out of 13 total seminar sessions), or one week of unexcused absences from the fieldwork or project work (out of a total of 11 weeks of fieldwork or project work), may receive a lower grade or, at the professor’s discretion, may be withdrawn from the practicum course.

Would you like to offer the Pass/Fail grading option?

Does this course qualify as a "simulation course"?

Is this course available to distance students?

Is this a mandatory Pass-Fail course?
