Externship Program Requirements

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


Each student must have both a Field Supervisor at the externship site and a Faculty Supervisor at UW Law.

The Field Supervisor is a judge or attorney at the Sponsor Organization who agrees to abide by the policies and procedures of the Externship Program. This includes providing the student with appropriate training and meeting regularly with the student to provide ongoing supervision and feedback.

 The Faculty Supervisor is designated by the Externship Program and assigned to students to evaluate their academic performance.

Please see Information for Field Supervisors and Information for Faculty Supervisors pages for additional information.
