Summer Externship Program participants can earn three (3) academic credits through guided and close learning experiences with practitioners in judicial chambers, government offices, non-profit organizations, corporate legal departments and private firms.
To gain academic credit, each participant attends an Orientation in May that is taught by legal research and writing faculty as well as the Director of Experiential Learning. Online class meetings in June and July facilitate student reflection on their work experiences. Additional details about summer externship activities are posted on the "Summer Externships" page.
