The Judicial Externship course allows students to perform 8-12 hours of legal work per week in a state or federal court while participating in a companion weekly seminar. Placements are typically in the Michiana area, but students may also work in Chicago, southern Michigan, or other cities in northern Indiana. Students earn three credits (two of which are fieldwork credits) for an eight hour weekly field placement or four credits (three of which are fieldwork credits) for a twelve hour weekly field placement. All placements must be approved by the instructor and must be finalized before a student may enroll in the course.
Instructor: Adjunct Professor Dory Mitros Durham.
