LAW 9650 - Externship

Externships give students the opportunity to engage in legal work under the close supervision of practicing attorney or judicial mentors. Placements are available in selected law offices, judicial chambers, government agencies, nonprofit organizations and other practice settings. Externships combine field work performed on site in a legal setting; approximately 12 hours of classroom attendance; and reflective writing in support of the externship learning.

Students complete 114 hours of field work for a three (3) credit externship. Externships for 4‑6 credits are based on additional field work hours. More information is available on the website and in the Externship Office. Students may enroll in no more than two externships during law school for a total of no more than 15 credits.

Professional Responsibility is a prerequisite or concurrent requirement for all externships, except judicial externships. Other prerequisites may be required for particular externship placements and are listed on the website.
