Students who receive permission from the Dean of Students and the Field Placement Director may spend a semester at long-distance Judicial Externships away from the law school campus and earn up to 10 units doing legal work in a court or judicial chambers with appropriate supervision. Students must have their placements approved before they are eligible to receive academic credit. Once the application is approved, students will receive a course control number. Students may work between 16 hours/week (4 units) to 40 hours/week (10 units) for 14 weeks (224 - 560 hours). Judicial externships are expected to track the academic calendar. Students are directed to: www.law.berkeley.edu/179.htm for a copy of the Field Placement Application and to learn more about the Judicial Externship Program. The Field Placement Director is available to help students identify externships.
