Externship Placement Sites

Our prime downtown location leads to numerous opportunities for our students to discover new and interesting aspects of the law through our 80+ externship sites.

Externships allow students to receive academic credit while working under the guidance of supervising lawyers selected from the bar and judiciary. The experience gained through an externship ensures that students graduate practice-ready and with a network or professional connections.
