Once clinical preferencing results have been released, add/drop opens for clinics (fall, winter and spring). Students may drop from any clinics they were enrolled in, enroll in any open clinics, and add themselves to the waitlist for any clinic they did not preference during clinical registration. Waitlists continue to process in Helios up until the drop deadline.

clinic waitlist processing

If you receive a clinic waitlist offer and are having problems accepting it, please refer to the “Registration and Add/Drop” section of our Frequently Asked Questions webpage.

Clinic waitlists move significantly.  Waitlists for fall clinics will process over the summer until the drop deadline.  Waitlists for winter and spring clinics will continue to process throughout the fall, until the winter and spring drop deadline hits.

If you’d like to speak with someone about the chances of you getting off a particular clinic waitlist, please contact clinical@law.harvard.edu.

clinical drop deadlines and project/client assignments

Please note that clinic add/drop deadlines are earlier than non-clinical add/drop deadlines.  Some clinics have even earlier drop deadlines than the general clinical drop deadlines – check the clinic’s description in the HLS Course Catalog to confirm each individual clinic’s drop deadline, or reference our Clinical Curriculum Chart.

Dropping after the applicable drop deadline will result in an “Withdrawal” (WD) on your academic transcript. You cannot drop a multi-semester (e.g. Fall-Winter) clinical course after the first semester’s (Fall) drop deadline. Clinical work begins the first week of classes.

Please note that for most clinics, students will not know their specific project assignment until after the clinic’s drop deadline. To learn more about the potential clinical projects for a given semester, please contact the clinic directly.
