Judicial Externships are the fieldwork component of the Judicial Externship Seminar (289A). J.D. students may receive between 4-12 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 in their third semester are limited to five field placement units. 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 all day on Friday, August 23, 2024, and students are required to attend 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: for a copy of the Field Placement Application and to learn more about the Judicial Externship Program.
