Legal Externship Program

Information for Students

Welcome to Denver Law’s Legal Externship Program! Legal externships specifically refer to monitored hands-on legal and law-related work experiences in which the placement is outside of the law school (versus working in an in-house clinic or as part of a lab with a faculty member).

Explore our website to learn about the student experience pre, during, and post externships, and review our student handbook for more detailed information.

Student Reflections on Externships

“This experience, and the tasks I have been allowed to take on have been the most beneficial and educational experience thus far in law school.” “…All of the attorneys were genuinely interested in helping you learn and grow accustomed to the work environment.” “Every project and every activity is going to help shape the lawyer I cannot wait to become in the near future.”
