Supervised Externship Seminar (LAW-769-001)
IMPORTANT: CLASS WILL MEET IN SMALL GROUPS FOR AN EXTRA HOUR AFTER CLASS EVERY OTHER WEEK. The professor may also schedule small group meetings at her office in downtown DC if necessary for students who cannot meet after class. REGISTRATION: There are two parts to registering for an externship: 1) Register on-line for the seminar as you would for any class. 2) Register for the field placement by going to the Externship Page www.wcl.american.edu/externship and submit a Request for Approval, which generates the necessary forms.
This is a three credit class to be taken in conjunction with a field placement in a non-profit organization, government agency, court or private law firm handling pro bono matters exclusively. Throughout the seemster, we will explore the meaning of being a lawyer in a variety of legal settings. The course will feature in depth discussions about your field placements, guest speakers from the public and private sector, and readings related to the practice of law.
