Legal Externship Seminar: The Practice of Law in a Private Firm | l4705-6

The Externship Office is divided into practice-specific programs. Students enrolled in each of these programs are required to also enroll in an accompanying, for-credit seminar that will address topics specific to each practice area. This seminar is designed for students who are enrolled in the Private Practice Externship Program for the first time. If the student has previously completed an externship in the Private Practice Externship Program, he or she does not need to take the seminar again.

The course will address topics specific to the practice of law in a private firm, such as ethical issues, professionalism, effective advocacy, negotiations, practice management, office culture and client relationships.

This course is designed for students who are taking their first externship in the Private Practice Externship Program, and such students will be given priority. Please place yourself on the wait list for the class; once you have submitted the paperwork required to be enrolled in an externship, the Externship Office will enroll you in this course. If space allows, students who have taken an externship in this area in the past will also be considered.

Please consult the Legal Externship Office website for information on enrolling in a legal externship. http://law.du.edu/index.php/legal-externship-program
