Northern California Innocence Project Advanced Practice Clinic A

Certificate(s): Public Interest and Social Justice Law (List A)

Course Description:

Students who have completed the one-year NCIP course are encouraged to enroll in Advanced NCIP which provides the opportunity for them to continue to advance their individual cases and to research and discuss in-depth the specific issues relevant to promising cases. Advanced NCIP is available every semester, including summer. Participation requires faculty approval.

Note: Students can take a maximum of 6 units of graded credit from any combination of NCIP course credit [i.e., NCIP and NCIP Advanced Practice Clinic (Catalog numbers 505 and 515)]. Any additional units will be graded on a Credit/No Credit basis only.
If you have taken 6 letter-graded units of Northern California Innocence Project A, you should enroll in Northern California Innocence Project Advanced Practice Clinic B (515B) which is graded Credit/No Credit.

Class Notes:

 NCIP will be meeting remotely Fall semester with perhaps some in-person events and meetings – but all such activities will be optional or mixed with participants online and held only if all health and safety concerns can be met.

Experiential Course

Graded. Limited enrollment. Students who have completed the one-year NCIP course are encouraged to enroll in Advanced NCIP which provides the opportunity for them to continue to advance their individual cases and to research and discuss in-depth the specific issues relevant to promising cases.  Participation requires faculty approval.  Students must obtain a permission number to register for this course (contact Linda Starr, Lstarr@scu.edu).  NCIP 515A is the proper course to enroll in if you wish to take Advanced NCIP for 3 units or less for a grade. If you desire 4 or more units, you must register those extra units beyond 3 in NCIP 515B, as they will be credit/no credit.  Note: Students can take a maximum of 6 units of graded credit from any combination of NCIP course credit [i.e., NCIP  and NCIP Advanced Practice Clinic (Catalog numbers 505 and 515)].  Any additional units will be graded on a Credit/No Credit basis only.
