General Description: The Clinic consists of two components. The classroom portion focuses on the history and development of laws affecting the mentally ill, while also preparing the students for court hearings. Students then appear in court on a weekly basis, and students with third-year practice certificates will represent their own clients in civil mental health commitment hearings. As of Fall 2010, students receive three (3) total credits for this class. Two (2) credits are "in-class" and one (1) credit is "out-of-class" credit. The course may be offered for a letter grade or for "CR" credit. The instructor will make this determination before the start of each semester.
