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 classwork in an online course during each week of students' externship work. Students may extern with approved government 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, students, if certified, may appear on behalf of clients in court.
