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 14, 2022, and then will meet on three Tuesday evenings during the semester. Students are required to attend the January 14th Orientation in order to receive credit for the Seminar and their Externships. Students complete memos, timesheets, and forms/reports to earn the academic credit.
