Villanova Law's 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, and private firms.
To gain academic credit, each participant attends an Orientation each May that is taught by practitioners experienced in mentoring and supporting law student learning. Additional details about Orientation will be posted as each summer approaches.
