Externships offer Georgetown law students the opportunity to earn credit for unpaid work in the public sector. Facilitated by our unique location in the heart of Washington, most of our students choose to work for the federal government, though a substantial number choose to work on the Hill, in judicial chambers, and in local or national non-profit agencies.
In addition to their field work, each student participates in four seminar classes, each with a short written assignment. Students will be able to receive either 2 or 3 credits, for either 10 or 15 hours worked respectively, over a minimum of 11 weeks. Both options are graded on a pass/fail basis. Externship credits are counted toward the seven-credit limit on pass/fail courses.
