Externship Program Requirements

Students may earn academic credit for externships pursuant to Standard 305 of the ABA Standards for Approval of Law Schools.


Tuition for externship credits is calculated at the same rate as all other J.D. credits.

Students may not receive academic credit for any work for which the student also receives compensation. This does not preclude reimbursement of reasonable out-of-pocket expenses related to the externship.
