Externship: Public Interest/Public Sector



Corporate In-House externships place students with legal departments of companies. An example is 1-800-DENTIST.

Externs work closely with experienced attorneys on a range of projects generally involving research and analysis, drafting document, and observation/participation in meetings and negotiations.

Depending on the placement, the work may be transactional or litigation oriented.

The field placement is complemented by an academic component, including several class meetings on campus and/or via videoconferencing. For specific details, please see the Externship Office staff and course syllabus.
