Coastal Law strongly encourages all students to acquire practical legal work experience while in school. This is consistent with the ABA’s and NALP’s assessment that hands-on learning opportunities are instrumental in preparing new associates for the demands of the practice of law and, likewise, make new lawyers more marketable to employers.
Judicial externships, in particular, are incredible opportunities for students to learn valuable skills and earn academic credit while working directly for a judge or a court. The application process for Judicial Externships for spring 2013 is now open.
The application is due to Professor Laura Boeckman by 5:00 p.m. on September 19, 2012. You must have completed all of your first year courses to be eligible to participate in a judicial externship.
You can find the application and learn more at http://www.fcsl.edu/academics/judicial-externships or you can also attend an informational meeting about the Judicial Externship program on September 17, 2012 from 12:00 until 1:00 p.m. in room 415.
Once again, you are strongly encouraged to apply. If you have any questions, please contact Professor Boeckman.
