Externships

Putting Theory into Practice

Students in our Externship Program experience tremendous learning opportunities outside the classroom. Externships provide students with practical skills and substantive training while they earn course credit.

Through externships, students gain great insight into the operation of the legal system and develop a heightened sense of professional responsibility. Students are paired with site-supervising attorneys who work one-on-one with students as they develop their legal skills. Students also work throughout the semester with a faculty supervisor who helps guide their learning experience.

Students work in a wide range of Atlanta-area legal placements, government agencies, nonprofit organizations and judge’s offices. Part-time and full-time students are eligible for externships. Placements are offered each semester.
