Immigration Law Field Placement – 7621

Spring 2023

All students must read theRules for Supervised Field Placements before registering.

This course provides an opportunity for students interested in Immigration Law to work alongside practitioners. The instructor and student will work together to find an appropriate placement that matches the student’s interests and host’s needs. Previously taking LAW 6872 Immigration Law is not required, but preferred.

Students must complete an online application form in order to register for a Topical Field Placement course AFTER obtaining pre-approval from the faculty advisor. The registration form is at this link: Topical Field Placement Form. Clicking on the link more than once will open multiple forms under your name. Only do this if you plan to submit more than one form for approval.

To edit a form or check the status of a form you already submitted, go to and log-in with your UMN ID and password. On the home page, click on “My requests in progress” or “My actions to do” if an action is assigned to you. You can also find a request by entering the request number (this number is in the email notification you received when you submitted your form) in the search box (the third empty box in the upper left corner). Note that you cannot edit a form once it is submitted for approval.
