Externship on the Federal Government: Semester in Washington, DC
Note: Open to third-year J.D. candidates in the fall semester and second- and third-year J.D. candidates in the spring.
This full-semester offering provides a valuable hands-on complement to the Law School’s more conventional courses in public law. The Externship enables students to integrate their public law education in an applied setting. Externs apply to participating federal government law offices or Washington, DC-based nonprofits on a guided basis following admission to the Externship. Admission is by application only. Up to fifteen students will be selected. Rachel Pauley, Director of Government Programs and Lecturer in Law, will oversee placements, including the application process and term-time counseling.
The application process for this externship is on a separate timeline and has its own application. Applications for Fall 2020 are due on March 5th at 4PM EST. Please contact Rachel Pauley if you are interested in applying and with any questions.
