Externships offer an opportunity for students to earn academic credit while working in outside law offices or judicial chambers. Externships enable students to explore legal work in both South Bend and Chicago that may not be available through clinics or other courses. Externship students participate in faculty-led seminars and other activities to help them reflect on their field experiences.
Current externship offerings allow students to work in the field for as little as a half day per week or as much as four days per week. Students may earn up to ten fieldwork credits in externships toward their graduation requirements.
Nine months after graduation, 18 members of the Class of 2012—9% of the class—report having secured federal clerkships. With that percentage, Notre Dame stands in a tie for 10th place among all law schools nationwide, according to data reported to the American Bar Association.View All News
