1.7 Externships

As a rule, the Law School does not grant academic credit for student externships with entities outside of the Law School.  The sole exception to this prohibition on academic credit for work done with outside agencies is for work undertaken through a student’s participation in one of the Law School’s clinical programs involving an outside agency (i.e., the Gendered Violence and the Law Clinic, the Poverty and Housing Law Clinic, or the Prosecution and Defense Clinic).  Law School students have nevertheless chosen to participate in non-credit externships with outside entities (the FBI, Cook County State’s Attorney, judges, etc.) and found the experience worthwhile.
