Externships

EXTERNSHIP FACT SHEET
(updated 3/25/15)

 

PERMANENT EXTERNSHIPS

Permanent externships have been approved as individual courses and have the same faculty and field supervisors each semester. Each permanent externship has its own course number, listing and description that do not change. Permanent externships have the prefix LAW 693 and are assigned a section number.

 

Students apply for permanent externships in accordance with the procedures provided in the course description. Before registering for the course, students must get permission to enroll from the faculty and field supervisors.  

 

AD HOC EXTERNSHIPS

Students may initiate their own field placement or apply for an existing “ad hoc” externship which refers to any non-permanent externship. Ad hoc externships all have the same course number 693 §3. All ad hoc externships must be pre-approved by the faculty and field supervisors and the Curriculum Committee. Students must fill out an ad hoc externship form and submit to the Externship Coordinator who will review and forward to the Curriculum Committee for approval. There are separate forms for Corporate & For-Profit and Government & Non-Profit. Please ensure you submit the appropriate form. (See Below)

 

Ad hoc externship forms: Corporate/For Profit and Gov’t/Non-Profit:

 

POST FEB BAR EXTERNSHIPS

Post February bar externships are available to both Feb bar takers and non-Feb bar 2L and 3Ls. Feb bar externship placements do not need to be pre-approved unless they are student initiated ad hoc placements. Students taking Feb Bar externships must enroll in 698C for the 8 week period post bar.
