Externship Program

DePaul Law Field Placement Program

The Externship Program bridges the gap between the theory of law and the practice of law by affording law students the opportunity to work with judges (federal, state, or county), government agencies (federal, state or local), not-for-profit organizations, and for-profit entities, such as a private law firm or in-house counsel for a corporation. In an Externship, a student engages in the legal work typically encountered by attorneys at the Externship Site thereby affording the student an opportunity to be an integral member of the Externship Site’s legal team. Every student will have a dedicated Externship Site supervisor to supervise the student’s work and provide feedback and guidance.
