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. This Seminar is front-loaded - it will meet for a full day on Friday, January 22, 2021, and then will meet on Tuesday evenings during the semester. Students must attend the January 22nd 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, January 22, 2021 for a full day and four additional Tuesday evenings during the semester.
