Clinic Attendance Policy

Clinic Attendance Policy

Attendance at clinical seminars, team meetings, client meetings, and appearances before adjudicative and legislative bodies is a primary obligation of clinical students whose right to continued enrollment in a clinic is conditioned upon a record of attendance satisfactory to the professor. A student whose unexcused absences exceed a combination of three required clinic obligations or whose total absences, excused and unexcused, exceed five clinic obligations may be compelled to withdraw from the course. A student who is compelled to withdraw shall receive a WF in the course, unless in the professional opinion of the faculty member, it is deemed that the student should receive a WA. A student, who is compelled to withdraw in the second semester of a year-long clinic, shall receive a grade for the first semester of the course, along with the number of credits awarded for that semester, and a WF for the second semester of the course.
