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

The Externship - Part Time, Neighborhood Legal Services course allows 1 or 2 students to earn 5 or more credit hours as externs working at least 17 hours per week at the local legal services office in Ithaca (formally known as Legal Assistance of Western New York, Tompkins/Tioga Neighborhood Legal Services)(NLS) 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 an NLS attorney 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 at NLS, the extern will create a Learning Agenda, prepare weekly Journal entries, engage in a regular electronic Discussion Board with other externs and the instructor, host the instructor for a site visit, and do a written Description of Placement (see the BlackBoard web site for Externship - Part Time, Neighborhood Legal Services and the site for Externship - Full Time for more detail on these requirements).
