|Basis for grading|
All of the clinics have weekly classes which provide students with training in the types of matter addressed by the clinic, opportunities to discuss cases and projects being handled, and a forum to share experiences.
Students may take clinical courses for a maximum of 10 units by either participating in the same clinic twice or in different clinics. In a placement clinic, the first time is for four units while the second time is for three units.
Students who have not had a first-time clinic experience have priority over students who have had a clinic experience already.
