2.11 Externships

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 programs involving an outside agency (i.e., the Poverty and Housing Law Clinic, the Prosecution and Defense Clinic, or the Government Integrity and Transparency Seminar). Law School students nevertheless have chosen to participate in non-credit externships with outside entities (the FBI, Cook County State’s Attorney, judges, etc.) and found the experience worthwhile.
