George Mason University School of Law Supervised Externship Program
Students must have completed at least a third of their courses in law school before applying for an externship. The externship takes them outside the classroom and into real work settings, such as the Executive Office of the President, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Alexandria Commonwealth Attorney's Office, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, and the U.S. Department of Justice.
In addition, students may choose externships within the courts, with corporations, with the Senate or Congress, public defender offices, state government offices or private law firms. Students are encouraged to choose an area where they would like to specialize. This would give them key knowledge to prepare them for a career in law within that environment.
Students will receive college credit for their externship experience. For 180 hours of work, they receive three credits, and two credits are earned for 120 hours of work. Students work an average of 8-12 hours per week.
The location is usually in DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.
