Judicial 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 may enroll for part-time or full-time placements. NOTE: All full-time externs must take the Law 261 Judicial Process Seminar prior to or concurrently with the full-time externship. The seminar is offered only in the fall semester. Externs work in state and federal chambers, such as the California Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, as well as all trial courts. Students may also work in administrative hearing offices. Students research legal issues, evaluate legal arguments, write judicial memoranda, draft opinions and orders and observe courtroom activity including motions, hearings and trials. As appropriate, students will take part in meetings and discussions in chambers.

Prerequisite: Judicial Process Seminar required for full-time clinical students and recommended for part-time clinical students.
