Federal Judiciary Externships

Most federal judges prefer that law schools send all student applications for Federal Judicial Externships in a single bulk mailing from the law school. Most federal judges also have stated preferences for the applications the judges will accept for consideration. The most common preferences include students' year in law school and class rank. The College of Law Externship Program assists students in obtaining Federal Judicial Externships by distributing applications directly to the federal judges on behalf of our students. To apply for a Federal Judicial Externship, qualified students will submit an application packet consisting of a cover letter, resume, unofficial transcript, writing sample and FERPA release form through our online Externship Postings (search for Federal Judiciary Externships). The Externship Program will determine which of these applications to forward to judges based on which applications match the judges' stated preferences. The Externship Program will send those applications that meet the judges' stated preferences to the federal judges' chambers either through email or US mail in accordance with the timeline set forth below.
