Employment Relations Externship

All King Hall externships have two components. Students perform substantive legal work at a field placement, and under the supervision of a faculty advisor, complete professional development assignments. See the Externship website for more information. Students gain practical experience in employment relations, including employment discrimination and public sector labor law. Students work under the direct supervision of a lawyer and may join in in a range of activities, with emphasis on observation and participation in actual investigation, interviewing, drafting pleadings, and attendance at hearings. Past placements have included the EEOC, the Legal Aid Society’s Employment Law Center and various CA Attorney General Divisions.
