Students often report that externships are the most meaningful and educational part of their law school experience and that is due in no small part to the dedicated professionals who serve as extern supervisors. Extern supervisors are more than just supervisors; they are mentors, educators, role models, coaches, motivators, and supporters.
The externship program allows 2L and 3L students who meet certain requirements to receive academic credit for externships secured with area law firms, judges, businesses, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. This program provides students with the opportunity to gain practical, hands-on experience as part of their law school education.
Student participants are required to attend a corresponding faculty-led externship course, submit evaluations and weekly timesheets, and complete other assignments. The course focuses on the development of lawyering skills, self-reflection and professional identity.
