  • Judicial field placements involve working in the chambers of a state or federal judge in exchange for unit credit at Loyola. Externs perform such tasks as file evaluation, legal research, or preparation of memoranda. Judicial externships are graded “pass” or “fail.” To apply please create an Experience on 12twenty's Experiential Learning tab. For an updated referral list please head to 12twenty's Resource Library.

  • Loyola students pursuing Public Interest field placements may select from among many approved pro bono organizations to find the right opportunity for them. A referral list of approved public interest organizations can be found on 12twenty's Resource Library. To apply, create an experience on 12twenty's Experiential Learning tab.
