Student Clinics and Externships Application Form

IT IS TIME FOR ENROLLMENT IN CLINICS OR EXTERNSHIPS FOR THE 2019 SUMMER TERM AND FOR THE FALL, 2019 SEMESTER.

This is your opportunity to put what you’ve been learning up until now to use in real legal work, representing indigent clients or working in a judge’s chambers or a public interest law office – for academic credit.

The enrollment period begins today and continues until Friday, April 12. Applications submitted after the deadline will be considered for positions in the clinic or externship applied for if space is available.

Registration for Summer and Fall courses begins on April 16.

To apply, download the Experiential Courses Application (pdf) form or Experiential Courses Application (docx). It contains descriptions of all of the experiential offerings (clinics and externships) for the Summer and Fall, 2019, terms.  You can download this form, complete it, and turn it in to faculty secretary Patti Burns (4th floor faculty secretarial area) by the deadline, along with a current résumé, an official transcript (from the Office of the Registrar), and (if you are applying for an externship) a short writing sample that indicates your proficiency in legal reasoning and writing.  (Résumé and writing sample can be submitted as email attachments to [email protected].)

You can apply for more than one clinic or externship – simply indicate your order of preference among the courses offered in the appropriate place on the application form, and if you are not accepted for your first choice you will be considered for your subsequent choices.

If you have questions about the clinics, please do not hesitate to stop in to the offices of the clinics in the experiential wing on the 2nd floor of the Law Building and talk to clinic directors Professor Griesmer (Pennsylvania Criminal Defense Clinic[email protected]), Professor Harrington-Conner (Delaware Civil Clinic - [email protected]), Professor Kristl (Environmental & Natural Resources Law Clinic[email protected]), Professor Morrell (Veterans Clinic[email protected]), and current students. 

If you have questions about externships, please feel free to stop by my office (Room 405) or to contact Professor Catania at [email protected].
