The Externship Program offers students a wide range of opportunities to experience the actual operation of legal institutions to explore the nature of the attorney-client relationship and to refine the lawyering skills they will use as future attorneys under the supervision of an experienced lawyer or judge.
Externships expose students to particular areas of practice through work in specialized offices, including the judiciary, public interest organizations, government offices and a limited number of private corporations. As externs, students more fully develop their legal research and writing skills, interact with clients and develop practical skills in oral advocacy and courtroom procedure.
