LAW 3824 - Externship Program, Criminal Law


In this course students are placed in the offices of judges or other nonprofit agencies, including regulatory, prosecutorial and legal defense agencies. Each student works 12 hours per week at the assigned office, and must produce a minimum of 25 pages of substantial written work based upon legal research over the course of the semester. The course includes a weekly seminar in which students examine substantive and ethical legal issues that have arisen during their placements. Each student presides over a session of the seminar on at least one occasion. Additionally, all students meet with a supervising faculty member on a regular basis to review their written work, the substantive and ethical issues with which they have been dealing, and the functioning of their placement in general. The faculty supervisor is also in contact with the attorney in charge of each placement during the semester to ensure the continued quality of the placement. This course may be taken only once by a student and is graded on a pass/fail basis.
