LAW 3824 - Externship Program, Criminal Law


In this course students are placed in the offices of  prosecutorial and legal defense agencies and judges handling criminal cases. Each student works a minimum of 12 hours per week at the assigned office, and must produce a minimum of 15 pages of substantial written work based upon legal research over the course of the semester. The course includes a weekly one-hour seminar in which students examine substantive legal, ethical and professionalism issues and participate in professional skills exercises and weekly written assignments. 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.  The students’ field placement work is graded on a pass/fail basis but students receive a letter grade (A-F) for the seminar component.

Credits: 2 - 4
