WHAT STUDENTS ARE ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE?
The program is offered one semester per academic year in the fall semester. To be eligible for the program, a student must have a minimum specified GPA and have already taken Business Enterprise (LAW 6420), the basic business law course. The program is open to second and third-year students; however, this year, all participating students were in their final year of law school.
HOW ARE STUDENTS SELECTED?
Students apply through a competitive application process. As part of the process, each applicant submits a current resume, law school transcript, and an application on which he or she describes the reasons why he or she wants to participate and indicates his or her practice area, industry and company preferences.
An information session will be held at the law school on Tuesday, March 1. 2016, in Florence Hall 207 for interested students. Externs will be announced in late March and will be assigned to corporations based on student practice area interest and industry focus as much as practicable. Approximately 50 placements are available.
