The Judicial Externship Seminar is the required 1-unit companion course for Judicial Externships. Students identify judicial externships with courts, chambers, administrative law judges, or other judicially-related work and complete a Field Placement Application available at: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/, to be eligible for academic credit for their work. The Seminar is co-taught by two Judicial Officers. This Seminar is front-loaded - it will meet for a full day on Friday, August 21, 2020, and then will meet as a class four other Tuesday evenings during the semester. Students must attend the August 21 Orientation in order to receive credit for the Seminar and their Externships. Students complete memos, timesheets, and forms/reports to earn the academic credit. Contact Sue Schechter, Field Placement Director with any questions or for assistance in identifying judicial externships. To schedule an advising appointment, go to: sschechter.youcanbook.me.

PLEASE NOTE: Course will meet Friday, August 21, 2020 for a full day and then four other Tuesday evenings throughout the semester (August 25th, September 22nd, October 20th and November 10th).
