The Externship Program provides learning opportunities for students placed with judges and lawyers in government and public interest organizations who have agreed to provide a mentored learning environment away from the law school. All externs are supervised by a law faculty member.
Law Practice Externships
Students work in a nonprofit or governmental agency or organization and participate in a seminar designed to provide an opportunity for structured reflection on the role of the lawyer.
