Externship Seminar - Summer Session
J.D. Seminar 450
| 3 credit hours
The externship program offers students the opportunity to gain perspective on the legal system by seeing law in action, and to gain a deeper understanding of the law by integrating theory with practice. Students are permitted to work for governmental, judicial or non-profit organizations. Students should complete the on-line application found on the JD Externship web page linked below. This course is open to students who have completed the first year full-time or part-time program. The externship course is graded pass/fail and the externship credits do not count toward the seven-credit limit on pass/fail courses. More detailed information about externship requirements is available at: http://www.law.georgetown.edu/registrar/externship.html.
Externships and Clinics Students may not concurrently enroll in an externship and a clinic, except Street Law.
Instructions for Registering for the JD Externship Program Students cannot register for the JD Externship Program using MyAccess, and must use the application found on the JD Externship Web Page to be eligible for enrollment. All approved applications will be forwarded to the Office of the Registrar.
Eligibility for Second Externship
To be eligible for a second externship, a student must submit a memo to the Associate Dean of Clinical Programs, Public Interest and Community Service, explaining: (1) what his/her learning objectives are, and how they differ from those for the first externship; and (2) why these learning objectives cannot be met by existing clinical or practicum course opportunities.
Externships and Practicum Courses
Students may not concurrently enroll in an externship and a fieldwork-based practicum course. Students typically may concurrently enroll in an externship and a project-based practicum course. Students who wish to receive credit for the Externship Seminar and a practicum course that has the same field placement may do so only if: (1) the practicum course is taken in a semester following the Externship Seminar; and (2) the student receives permission from the Assistant or the Associate Dean for Clinical Programs. To receive such permission, the student must explain in writing how the practicum course field work would serve substantially different learning goals than did their externship field placement.
