Prerequisites and Recommended Courses
Students who would like to enroll in this Clinic must attend one of the mandatory pre-registration clinic informational meetings held each semester. The dates for these meetings are published in advance in the E-docket. Students must sign in at the mandatory meeting in order to verify their attendance. If a student who has not attended one of the mandatory meetings (either this semester or the immediately preceding semester) registers for this Clinic, that student will be automatically dropped from the class by the Registrar. A dropped student may attempt to re-register after meeting with the appropriate faculty member; however, there is no guarantee that there will be space in the clinic to allow re-enrollment.
