Pre-approved Placements

As long as the work being performed is otherwise appropriate pro bono legal work under the program rules, the following placements are considered pre-approved for pro bono work. Students must still submit the project for approval via Symplicity, thus creating a project within which to report hours. Pre-approval means the student can, absent unusual circumstances, assume approval via Symplicity will be forthcoming, but the electronic creation of the project for approval is a necessary step."

College of Law Externship Placements

Katherine Ball, externship coordinator
Kristi Denney, externship coordinator for Moscow and remote locations

All externship placements that are currently approved are pre-approved for pro bono placements (consult Symplicity or the relevant externship director/coordinator if you are unsure). Students may fulfill the pro bono requirement by working additional hours after they have completely and satisfactorily fulfilled all the requirements of the externship. Simultaneous externship and pro bono service for the same supervisor or agency is not allowed.

Magistrate Judge Distance Clerk Project

Professor Katherine Ball directs a special program of training and service as distance law clerks for magistrate judges in Idaho. Please consult Prof. Ball and watch for announcements regarding requirements and details for participation

College of Law Clinics

Students may not receive pro bono credit for any hours worked toward fulfillment of clinical work for which they are receiving credit. Pro bono work is not always available to students, whether or not enrolled in clinic, and any desired pro bono work in the clinic must be approved by the relevant clinical faculty member in advance.
