    Students who receive permission from the Office of Student Services and the Field Placement Director may spend a semester at long-distance Judicial Externships away from the law school campus and earn 10-12 units doing legal work in a court or judicial chambers with appropriate attorney/clerk/judge supervision. Students are expected to work full-time for a minimum of 10 units at their externships. Students must have their externships approved before they are eligible to receive academic credit. Once the application is approved, students will receive a class number. Judicial Externships are expected to track the academic calendar. While students are away, they conduct readings, submit timesheets, memos, and reports/forms, as well as maintain contact with the course Lecturer and the Field Placement Program. Students are required to attend an orientation session the semester before they plan to be off campus. Students are directed to: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ for the Field Placement Application. Students are required to schedule an advising apponitment with Sue Schechter, Field Placement Director, at sschechter.youcanbook.me, if they are considering an Away Judicial Externship.
