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 course does NOT meet the professional responsibility requirement. This Seminar is front-loaded - it will meet for a full day on Friday, January 12, 2024 and then will meet on three Tuesday evenings during the semester. Students are required to attend the entire January 12th 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 12, 2022 for a full day and three additional Tuesday evenings during the semester.
