Externships

Students participating in externships will work with a selected public sector agency, law office or judge taken from the approved list, unless otherwise agreed. Students are not eligible for credit with private firms or attorneys. Tasks undertaken include research, writing, analyzing, and assisting counsel or assisting judges. Depending upon the extern program, students may go to court to represent a client or agency.

Each student is required to work at the designated placement at least 120-180 hours a semester contingent upon the requirements of the specific program, or by what is arranged with the Director of Externships before the semester starts.

In addition to the hours required for the individual placements, there is a one-hour mandatory extern class every week in the fall and spring semesters. In the summer program, extern participants communicate via e-mail and telephone with their extern professor and work on a directed research project related to the work they are doing at the externship. This is normally an approved 7-page paper.

All extern participants are required to keep a weekly journal of their work. Participants in the fall and spring will close out the semester with a five page reflective paper on their work.
