954 - Field Placement - General Civil Law (3-4)

Students will perform on-site legal work as externs under the supervision of field placement supervisors in government agencies or non-profit entities which specialize in the practice of civil law. This is an umbrella course which includes placement sites that do not easily fit into the other externship categories. Placement site and practice descriptions are set forth in the Directory of Field Placements, which is available on the internet at the Pacific McGeorge website or in the Field Placement Program office. Current placement sites include the Yolo and San Joaquin County Counsel’s Offices, the Sacramento, Roseville and Stockton City Attorney’s Offices, California Office of Homeland Security, California Department of Education, the Pacific Justice Institute and the Pacific Legal Foundation. The Field Placement Director will help students find an appropriate placement, and must approve each student’s registration. (P/F).
