UW School of Law Externships
What is an Externship?
An externship is an experiential learning opportunity, which allows students to
receive academic credit while working in judges’ chambers, government agencies,
and non-profit organizations.
Externship Program requirements follow ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools.
An externship of two credits or more will fulfill the graduation requirement of
60 hours of public service for students in the Juris Doctor program.
UW Law also offers students a wide range of experiential learning opportunities
through the Clinical Law Program.
