A judicial/governmental externship allows students to experience and participate in the practice of law by working without remuneration off campus, under the direct supervision of one or more practicing attorneys in governmental offices (prosecutor, public defender, city attorney, or JAG), judicial, or other approved governmental placements. Students will have general oversight from full-time faculty.
The externship consists of legal field assignments, as well as required class work on Blackboard to expose students to professional development within the context of the practice of law. Externships also allow students to pursue additional educational objectives, such as the development of professional skills in a specific area of law by working with a practicing attorney or judicial officer.
