Externship Information

Capstone: Project/Externship is an MSLA program requirement that is typically pursued when a student has completed at least 50% of the required coursework, or, ideally, in the last term of study. The Capstone intends to provide students with an experiential opportunity to utilize knowledge acquired duringMSLA coursework through a meaningful experience in a law firm, legal organization or court. The law firm, legal organization or court hosting the extern is asked to provide relevant, real-world experience for the student, allowing the student to see the full range of administrative issues that a law firm, legal organization or court administrator might face. Host supervisors plan the agenda, monitor the performance and evaluate the performance of the student.

A student may use their current place of employment to fulfill the externship requirements. If a separate placement is sought, the student is required to obtain pre-approval of host site from the Program Director. Students must complete at least 150 hours of field work when in a placement that is not their current job. Student must also complete a related research project culminating in a research paper of 20-25 pages.

Students will also be registered for a concurrent Capstone course in Canvas. Under the supervision of MSLA faculty, the online component will focus on professional development and provide necessary skills and tools for students to market themselves and communicate learning experiences to potential employers.

Steps for Capstone approval:
1. Complete Research Project Proposal Form
2. Complete Externship Proposal Form
3. The Graduate Legal Studies office will register you for Capstone credits once all forms are received and approved
