Welcome to FALL 2015 ON-LINE Registration for Upper Level Full-Time and Evening students at the David A. Clarke School of Law.
Please read carefully the following instructions and gather all required documents before proceeding to myUDC.
1. CLINIC INSTRUCTIONS
Eligible students are required to take clinic. Once assignments have been made, students will receive an email notification. Students will be enrolled into the assigned clinic by the Registrar’s Offices, based on the results of the lottery. Clinic is required for students in the Class of 2016, unless you have received permission from Dean Morin to defer, or you were enrolled in Clinic II during the Summer 2015 term. If you have questions regarding your clinic assignment, please contact Assoc. Dean Jonathan Smith (email@example.com).
Please do not enroll in more than 10 credits, so that clinic can be added to your schedule. If you wish to exceed the credit limits for the semester, you must request permission after clinic has been added.
Clinic is offered for matriculating UDC-DCSL students ONLY.
2. UPPER LEVEL WRITING REQUIREMENTS (ULWR)
Effective immediately, the clinical portfolio can be comprised of two pieces (instead of three). Each piece must be derived from a different clinic. For additional information, please refer to the newly revised Handbook.
Advanced Legal Writing is a course option for satisfying the research paper requirement for graduation. Moot Court is a strictly enforced prerequisite for ALW. Spaces are limited, so refer to the Handbook for other options, if needed.
