Externships

CORPORATIONS

Credit-bearing externships offer students skills-building opportunities off campus and directly in the workplace. We place students with corporate legal departments, public interest organizations, and government agencies to work under the supervision of experienced attorneys and to learn the day-to-day practice of law. Our broad portfolio of externships target a range of interests and practice areas, including prosecution, policymaking, and advocacy.
