Space in clinic courses is allotted by lottery, weighted to favor certain groups of students by dividing them into the following groups:

Not participated in a clinic

  • Group One - 4L students
  • Group Two - 3L students
  • Group Three - 2L students
  • Group Four - 1L students (spring only)

Participated in a clinic

  • Group Five - 4L students
  • Group Six - 3L students
  • Group Seven - 2L students


  • Students are registered or waitlisted in the following order: first by group number and then by a randomly assigned number.
  • We try to match students with their first choice. If successful, they are not added to any waitlists.
  • If the first choice is full, students are waitlisted and registered for second choice. This repeats for third choices, fourth choices, etc.
  • You will not be registered for a clinic without complete any prerequisite(s) unless you obtain a waiver.


  • Lottery takes place the week before registration appointments.
  • You will receive an email announcing lottery dates, classes, instruction, and a link to a web-based lottery sign up form.


  • Before the term starts, students enrolled a clinic must commit to that clinic to remain enrolled.
  • Instructions to commit and deadline will be emailed two weeks prior to term start.
  • Reminder of commitment requirement will be emailed at least one week prior to deadline
  • By committing to the clinic, students agree to the following:
    • They will be dropped from all other clinic waitlists.
    • They may not drop the clinic except in extraordinary circumstances.
    • They will not enroll in an externship during the same term as the clinic.
  • Students who do not commit by the deadline will be dropped and their seat offered to the next waitlisted student.
