Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2015-2016.

The Externship - Part Time, Judicial course allows students to earn 4 or more credit hours as externs working at least 8 hours per week as a law clerk in the chambers of a New York or Federal judge in Central New York while continuing to attend classes at the law school. The course purpose is to provide a bridge between the study of law and its practice. A written application for the course must be submitted to the instructor and approved during the semester preceding the semester the student plans to participate. The student must be supervised/mentored by the judge or law clerk and engage in meaningful and "attorney-like" work at the placement which furthers the student's education and career goals. In addition to his or her work responsibilities in the judge's chambers, the extern will create a Learning Agenda, prepare weekly Journal entries, engage in a regular electronic Discussion Board with other externs and instructor, host the instructor for a site visit, and do a written Description of Placement (see the BlackBoard web site for Externship - Part Time, Judicial and the site for Externship - Full Time for more detail on these requirements).
