Administration of Criminal Justice Externship

All King Hall externships have two components. At the field placement, students handle legal assignments under supervision of an attorney. Under the supervision of a faculty advisor, students complete professional development assignments. See the Externship website for more information. Students gain practical experience working full or part time in a District Attorney's or Public Defender's office or another appropriate placement in one of several surrounding counties or in a federal Public Defender or US Attorney's office.  Students participate in the office’s many activities: observation, interviewing, research, writing, counseling, motion practice, and trials under State Bar rules. There is a cap of 15 students so you should apply early. Students wishing to practice must qualify for certification by the relevant state or federal jurisdiction.
