Externships provide a unique opportunity for students to work in a professional setting outside the Law School while earning academic credits. The program requires students work at an approved placement during the semester and take a companion externship course. The course enhances the student experience by assisting in the development of essential practical skills, professional skills, values and judgment. By emphasizing self-reflection, externships not only offer invaluable practical experience but ensures students have the capacity for self-directed professional growth beyond their law school years.
