All students must read the Rules for Supervised Field Placements before registering.
This course provides an opportunity for students to work with and learn from lawyers in private law firms of varying sizes and practice areas. A student may take the course for 1-3 credits with 50 hours per credit to be completed during the semester. Students must complete and submit time sheets and draft regular reflection papers. Students who have secured a field placement in a law firm may enroll after receiving instructor approval via email request.
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 wfgen.umn.edu 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.
