Special Requirement


Corporations and prior or concurrent enrollment in a professional responsibility course. 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).


Students may not concurrently enroll in this practicum and an externship or a clinic or another practicum course. Students may not receive credit for this practicum and the course In-House Counsel: Law and Practice.

This course is open to JD students only.

THIS COURSE REQUIRES PROFESSOR PERMISSION TO ENROLL. Students must submit a CV, a description of any relevant background in business or non-profit organizations, and a statement of interest in the course to Professor Peter Morgan ( by 5:00 p.m. on May 18, 2020. After the May 18 application deadline, students will be admitted into open seats on a rolling basis. Any student who is offered a seat in this course will be directly enrolled and will have one week only in which to drop. After that time, a student may only drop the course with the permission of the professor and the Assistant Dean of Experiential Education. Permission will be granted only if remaining in the practicum would cause significant hardship to the student.

This course may be suitable for evening students who can attend the weekly seminar and participate in the required amount of fieldwork.

This is a four credit course. Two credits will be awarded for the two-hour weekly seminar and two credits for the supervised fieldwork. The fieldwork must be completed during normal business hours. The two-credit seminar portion of this practicum will be graded. The two credits of fieldwork are mandatory pass/fail. Students will be allowed to take another course pass/fail in the same semester as the fieldwork.

Students who enroll in this course will be automatically enrolled in both the seminar and fieldwork 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 A student who is granted permission to withdraw will be withdrawn from both the seminar and fieldwork components.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 or one week of unexcused absences from the fieldwork may receive a lower grade or, at the professor’s discretion, may be withdrawn from the practicum course.
