Semester in Practice & Semester in Practice Seminar | L5029/L5030

The Semester in Practice program is designed to allow students the opportunity to develop practice skills by working full-time in legal programs of concern to the legal profession and community. This is a capstone experience offered to students in their last year of law school, where students have significant exposure to the substantive law in their externship. Example placements include public defenders’ offices; prosecutors’ offices; the attorney general’s office; legal service offices; judicial clerkships; and selected private firms. As this is an externship, credit earned may vary, up to 12 credits, depending on the student. Externship Seminar: In conjunction with the above field placement each student shall meet in a 3 credit graded seminar under the supervision of a member of the externship faculty to explore common and contrasting areas of professional responsibility, professional tasks and skills, decision making and dispute resolution presented in the various extern settings.
