Golden Gate University Law Externship Clinics
Law students may choose to work within government agencies, law offices, counsel offices, and judges' chambers. These externships give law students legal experience within the community. While working, students also receive college credit, ranging from 2-13 credits depending on the number of hours worked during the externship.
Externships are available in the areas of post-conviction defense, civil law, consumer rights, criminal, environmental, and family law, homeless advocacy, legal services for children, and real estate law. Each externship provides students with a rich experience in a real-life, community setting.
Students are supervised by faculty, judges and attorneys throughout their externship. In addition to working in a community office or agency, students also attend a seminar where they can share their externship experiences with others. Students must have completed one year of law school in order to apply and be in good academic standing.
The location is usually in CALIFORNIA.
