Instructor(s): Cheryl Milne

Max Enrol: 7 JD (conditional enrol)

Meeting Schedule: TBA

Registration in this course is only available to students enrolled in the Asper Centre Clinic course in the fall and who have obtained the approval of the instructor to continue their work into the second semester. Students may apply for an additional credit where the workload warrants.

The practicum provides students the opportunity to continue with litigation and advocacy work in clinic cases and projects. Students may continue projects on which they worked during the first term as well as new cases which may arise during the spring. Appellate level cases that invoke the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms in innovative ways to promote social justice will be selected. It is expected that students will have the opportunity to work alongside practitioners and faculty in developing written and oral arguments, for academic credit. Daily casework could include case theory formulation, constitutional legal research, appellate brief and factum writing and attendance at oral argument.

For details regarding registering for the clinic please see the course description for the Asper Centre Clinic (LAW391H1F).

Commitment:
Attendance at clinic meetings is mandatory. Students are routinely expected to provide oral briefings and analyses and to participate in discussions. While we will strive to make the overall workload of the clinic comparable to a course of similar weight, the clinic will at times involve obligations to clients and external deadlines which must be met. Students will also be required to provide reflective journal entries on Blackboard including commentary on the project work and the learning goals of the student.

Evaluation
Students will be evaluated on their clinical work.
