This course will provide academic credit to students who conduct substantive legal work at government and non-profit placements, attend a class designed for externs, and fulfill specified academic requirements. The goals of this program are twofold: to provide students with practical experience and to provide assistance to governmental entities and non-profit organizations which further the public good.
This externship program will accept 40 students per semester and will be offered to students during the summer, fall, and winter semesters. Students and representatives from potential placements will complete applications and students will be matched to approved placements by Student Services and Career Services staff. Placement approval is contingent upon the review of this application and a site visit by Moritz staff, if one has not been conducted as a part of the former Federal Work-Study Program.
