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, or 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 will meet as a class three other evenings during the semester. Students must attend the day long training in order to receive credit for their externships. Students will be expected to complete memos, 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 hours worked and availability of non-classroom units. The full day Judicial Externship Orientation will be on Friday, August 29, 2014. Please contact Sue Schechter, Field Placement Director with any questions or for assistance in identifying judicial externships.
