law group with judge


The externship program bridges the gap between theory and practice. Advanced law students have opportunities to work closely with practicing professionals in public agencies or nonprofit organizations; or for state and federal judges. They gain valuable practical experience while earning credit toward graduation.

Through externships, students:

  • Study the practice of law and public policy. 
  • Develop the ability to perform specific legal tasks. 
  • Enhance their capacity for analysis and critical reflection. 
  • Learn to examine legal doctrines and practices in the context of actual social problems and concerns. 
  • Master self-directed learning.
