LAW - 899 Externship Field Placement


(1-3 hrs.)

Students who have completed one year of law school may receive academic credit for performing substantive legal work under the supervision of an attorney in a government agency, nonprofit organization, court, or private law firm engaged in pro bono activities. Students registered in the externship program also participate in an externship seminar which draws upon the field placement experience to enhance each student’s understanding of legal institutions and of the work of the lawyer. Concurrent registration for LAW-769 (Externship Seminar) is required.
