A legal externship is a monitored work experience where the student establishes intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what is learned throughout their experience. With more than 450 placements a year, the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law’s Legal Externship Program is an effective and comprehensive bridge to take students from law student to lawyer.

Students enrolled in each of these programs will take an accompanying, for-credit seminar that will address topics specific to each practice area. These seminars are taught by professors who are experienced attorneys and will be 1 or 3 credit courses. (Most courses will be 1 credit.) Students will register for these courses in the same way they register for all other Denver Law courses. Students enrolled in any of the programs of the Legal Externship Program must enroll in the course that is part of the program in addition to the externship credits.
