Clinical?

Postby legalise » Thu Aug 22, 2013 8:00 pm

3L and registered for a clinical this fall at a public defender's office. I looked at the syllabus and realized how much work it's going to be --- basically every weekday will be entirely full (all day tuesday at the office and then 14 hrs outside of that day are required). I'm doing a different clinical in the spring and would rather just drop this one and take a class instead. I already have an offer for when I graduate ... thoughts? or am i dumb

What's your goal? Are you trying to learn something specific, or network for future career prospects, or just do something really interesting and fun with your time? I think that thinking about why you signed up in the first place and how the PD experience would or wouldn't fit into the goals you have for the year.
