Securities Arbitration Clinic
Due to the nature of clinical work, a student may not enroll in more than one clinic in a single semester. Students who do so will be automatically dis-enrolled from one of the clinics. Prior to dis-enrollment, clinical faculty will attempt to contact the student via email to inquire as to which clinic the student prefers.
Pre-registration clinic orientation meeting is required.
Students will receive a grade at the conclusion of each semester, however, in the event that a student does not complete the second semester the student shall receive a W for the course, thus nullifying the grade for the prior semester. Students will receive 4 credits per semester.
The final grade will be based on the student’s work throughout year, which includes: classroom participation, case analysis, client correspondence, and case preparation and representation.
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.
Second semester returning students in two-semester clinics will register after the “registration appointment period” concludes. That is, such students will register only during "open enrollment." The Registrar will provide such students with course permission numbers prior to the start of open enrollment to allow them to re-enroll.
