This second- and third-year elective introduces students to the working skills of an attorney or judicial clerk. Credit is based upon the number of hours worked and completion of a writing requirement. Students may extern with public legal agencies, not-for-profits, or federal, state and county judges. The type of work varies with each assignment but may include legal research and drafting memoranda and legal documents. In some externships, third-year students, if certified, may appear on behalf of clients in court.
