Prerequisites, Requirements, & Waiver of One-Externship Policy
Students must have completed one year of study in either the full or part-time program.
Due to changes in the ABA Standards governing externships, all externships will be accompanied by a one-credit seminar that aligns with the subject matter of your placement. For Spring 2016, this seminar will be a mandatory pass/fail class.
For the spring 2016 term only, the externship seminar will be graded pass/fail, and will not count towards the students' 7-credit pass/fail limit. Students will be assessed based upon the criteria below.
· Class participation
· Completion of Administrative Requirements (time sheets, supervision agreements, etc.)
· Reflection memos
· Final Paper
Students can apply by submitting the application form available on the JD externship web page, http://www.law.

Waiver of One-Externship Policy
Students are permitted to enroll in the externship program once. Under exceptional circumstances, a student may be granted a waiver of the one externship policy. A student who wishes to pursue a waiver should submit a memo to Jane Aiken, Associate Dean of Clinical Programs and Experiential Learning, and Carmia N. Caesar, Director of Externships, explaining: (1) what his/her learning objectives are, and how they differ from those for the first externship; and (2) why these learning objectives cannot be met by existing clinical or experiential learning course opportunities.
