The Externship - Part Time, Other Local course allows students to earn 4 or more credit hours as externs working at least 8 hours per week at approved placement sites in the Ithaca area while continuing to attend classes at the law school (most sites are with non-profit organizations or governmental agencies).  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 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 the placement, 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  for Externship - Full Time for more detail on these requirements).  Note:  This course requires off premises travel.  The student is responsible for travel to and from the sites.
