Government Lawyers in the Making
New York, March 11, 2013—Nick Moscow ’11 first heard about Columbia Law School’s Externship on the Federal Government in Washington, D.C. when Dean David M. Schizer outlined the new program in a spring 2010 talk about changes to the upper-year curriculum.
“It is a really solid complement to the Law School’s more traditional teachings in public law,” she said. “It’s a form of experiential learning that combines a substantial seminar with closely related field work for a rich experience in theory and practice. For students, it’s about creating and meeting their own expectations of what they will learn.”
