Law Clinic Grading Policy

Beginning with Fall 2014 classes, after students have enrolled in Law Clinic, they must elect to take clinic for either a letter grade or credit/no credit.

This new policy applies to the Small Business & Nonprofit Transactional Law Clinic and the Litigation Clinic. It does not apply to directed interns or Criminal Appeals Advocacy.

Potential clinic students should follow the regular enrollment procedures. Students will make their grade election at our training session (scheduled for August 22, 2014) and will have until the end of the first week of classes to change their election.

This policy is part of a two year pilot project to study a possible new grading system within the Law Clinic. The project is a single blind experiment: clinic supervisors and staff will not know what grade election students have chosen.
