View all teaching evaluations for this course
The Judicial Externship Seminar is the required 1-unit companion course to the Judicial Externship Program. Students line up Judicial Externships with courts, chambers, administrative law judges, and other judicially-related work and apply 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, time sheets, 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 is scheduled for Friday, August 24, 2012 in Room 145. Please contact the instructor with any questions.
Students must have completed their first year of law school in order to participate in the Field Placement/Judicial Externship Program.
