During the summer, placements are available with government and nonprofit law offices and select university departments.  Students may also propose their own externship placements for the summer.

Students work full time during a 6-week session under the direct supervision of attorneys in the offices to which they are assigned. They also attend externship classes at the law school at the beginning and end of the summer, and submit papers during and at the conclusion of the externship.

Examples of summer externship placements include:

  • United States Attorney Offices
  • District Attorney Offices
