    Judicial Externships are the field placement component to the Judicial Externship Seminar (289A). Students may receive up to 12 units of academic credit for their work with courts, chambers, administrative law judges, and other judicially-related fieldwork. Students identify their Judicial Externships and must receive approval from the Field Placement Director upon submission of a completed Field Placement Application. Students who are planning to be off campus full-time (10-12 units) must also receive approval from the Office of Student Services. Once the application is approved, students will receive the class number for the Externship and the Seminar. Judicial Externships are expected to track the academic calendar. The Judicial Externship Seminar Orientation will be on Friday, August 20, 2021, and students are required to attend in order to receive academic credit for their judicial externships. In addition, the Seminar will meet on selected Tuesday evenings during the semester. Students are directed to: https://www.law.berkeley.edu/experiential/field-placement-program/how-to-apply/ for a copy of the Field Placement Application and to learn more about the Judicial Externship Program. For an advising appointment, contact Sue Schechter, the Field Placement Director at sschechter.youcanbook.me.

    Depending on the public health situation and circumstances of specific placements, we anticipate that some placements may involve remote work during Fall 2021. This will be approved on a case-by-case basis by the Field Placement Program Director.
