Students who receive permission from the Dean of Students and the Field
Placement Director may spend a semester away from the law school campus
and earn up to 10 units working with courts, chambers, administrative
law judges, and other judicially-related work. Students line up judicial externships with courts, chambers, administrative law judges, and other judicially-related work and complete a Field Placement Application available at:, to receive academic credit for their work. Please note this seminar will be frontloaded - that is, we will meet for a full day at the beginning of the semester and then we will meet as a class two other evenings during the semester. Students must attend the day long training in order to receive credit for their placements. Students will be expected to complete journals, timesheets, and forms/reports to earn the academic credit for the Judicial Externship Seminar and Program. For every 4 hours of work/week over a 14 week period, students receive 1 unit of credit. Judicial Externships may be taken for 4 - 10 units, depending on the number of non-classroom units students have available. The full day Judicial Externship Orientation will be on Friday, January 11, 2012. Please contact the instructor with any questions or for assistance in identifying judicial externships.
